Michele Di Bari received his PhD in International Studies from the University of Trento, Italy in April 2012. He enrolled in the European Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratization (2006-07) after he graduated in International Relations and Human Rights at the University of Padova (2006).
Michele Di Bari is particularly interested in those legal issues related to the protection of fundamental rights at constitutional, supranational (EU level), and international level.
One of his main field of analysis concerns the attitude of judges vis-à-vis the application of fundamental principles in those contexts where the meaning of rights is still unclear.
During his PhD research period, Dr Di Bari has focused on the legal recognition of same-sex unions within the EU, analyzing how judges at different levels of adjudication have so far approached this issue in the light of the principle of equality nationally, supranationally, and internationally defined. His doctoral thesis on this subject has been published in 2012.
