Pietro Castelii Gattinara

Pietro Castelli Gattinara is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at the CEE and holds the Chair in Digital Political Communication at Cevipol, Université Libre de Bruxelles. He earned his Ph.D. in Political and Social Sciences in 2014 from the European University Institute and has held research and teaching positions at the Scuola Normale Superiore (Italy), the University of Oslo, and the University of Leicester. Since 2017, he has been collaborating with the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) and directing the ECPR Concepts and Methods to study far-right politics summer school. His research focuses on political cleavages in Europe, political participation in far-right movements, and the relationship between media and collective action.

Currently, he is working on three research projects:

  1. Far-Right Mobilization and the European Crises (FARMEC, funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action Programme). The project examines the reshaping of far-right collective action in 11 European countries from 2008 to the present (Legal information).

  2. The Comparative Far-Right Protest Project (CFP, funded by the Center for Research on Extremism, University of Oslo). This project provides a mapping of far-right protest mobilizations in Europe and beyond, studying their drivers and consequences.

  3. Mobilizing Against Migration (MAM, funded by the Norwegian Research Council in collaboration with the Peace Research Institute Oslo). The project explores the transnationalization of contemporary anti-immigration movements through interviews with activists and party officials in Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, and the United Kingdom.
