(or, without diacritics, for internet search: Andrei Stavila)
I am a PhD researcher in Political and Social Sciences at European University Institute (Florence, Italy).
I hold a master degree in Philosophy (“Al. I. Cuza” University, Iasi, Romania), an MPhil in Political Philosophy (Central European University, Budapest, Hungary) and an MRes in Political Sciences (European University Institute, Florence, Italy). My main research interests include political theory and philosophy, immigration, citizenship, minority rights, liberalism, normative ethics and the connection between ethics and international relations theory.
My current research project defends the concept of differentiated citizenship and uses it as a tool for solving normative problems raised by irregular migrants, temporary workers and dual citizens.
