A couple (?!?!) of conference papers that I'll present in the next weeks/months:
- No papers but just chairing the 3rd NASP workshop on Conflicts and Institutions in Genova (26 June). Here the terrific program.
-I'm really pleased to chair (with W.Wagner) the panel “Don’t stop at the water’s edge. Exploring the role of political parties in foreign policy” at the ECPR Hamburg 22-25 August. -Within the above-mentioned panel I have two papers. The first one is a "collective" paper, which is the result of a project on votes, parliaments and missions. The title of this paper (with Wagner, Kaarbo et al) is: "Voting on the use of armed force. Introducing a new dataset of parliamentary deployment votes in ten liberal democracies". The second paper (co-authored by V.Vignoli) I'll present in the panel is: "The foreign and defense policy of the Five Star Movement. Analysis of votes and debates”. Here the abstract. -I'll also present the paper (with L.Cicchi and E.Calossi): "Enrolling at the University after Role-playing. Assessing how the 'National Model United Nations' Experience Influences High-school Students’ Decisions". Here more details (also on the panel on innovative education). -Finally, for the ECPR, a paper on Italian and German defense policy with F.N. Moro: "The Times They Are A-Changing? Understanding Italian and German Defense Policy Reforms after the Cold War".
-I'll organize two panels at the the SISP Annual Conference in Turin (6-8 September). The first (co-chaired with F.N. Moro and A.Locatelli) is: “Change and continuity in European states’ defence policies”. The second (with L.Raineri) is: "Assisting them at their home? Italian and European Security Policies in Sahel and North Africa". -Within this last panel I'll present the paper (with M.Ceccorulli): "Migration and terrorism: the analysis of drivers, debates and goals behind the Italian military engagement in Niger and Libya".
-Finally, at EISA (Prague, 12-15 September), I'll present a paper (with F.N Moro and A.Locatelli): “The Italian Defence Policy after the Cold War. Europeanisation, American Influence, or Strategic Adjustment?”
