Ivan Stefanovski

PhD candidate

I hold a bachelor degree in Law and an LL.M. degree in Constitutional Law, both from the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. I started my Ph.D. in Constitutional Law at the same university in 2013.  At the beginning of my career, I started working as a member of the junior teaching staff at the Justinianus Primus Faculty of Law, giving classes and tutorials in Constitutional Law, Political Systems and Political Parties and Interest Groups. I later worked for several domestic and international NGOs working on issues such as elections and electoral models, media law, human rights, rule of law, freedom of information, free access to justice and similar issues. I am also a member of several international foundations and groups. I started my Ph.D. in Political Science and Sociology at the Scuola Normale Superiore in 2014, working on contemporary social movements in Southeast Europe

Edited Volume - 2018

Solidarity Mobilizations in the ‘Refugee Crisis’. Contentious Moves

Donatella della Porta (ed.)
This edited volume ddresses a gap in research on social movements that has disregarded the origins of discontent and overlooks protest as a resource of the powerless; it offers insight into how the movement of refugees across the European Union and elsewhere activates political opportunities; it explores claims to citizenship made by refugees within processes of knowledge production and the mobilization of emotions

Monograph - 2018

I movimenti animalisti in Italia. Strategie, politiche e pratiche di attivismo.

Niccolò Bertuzzi
Il volume si focalizza su coloro che in Italia si occupano di benessere, cura, diritti e liberazione animale all'interno di contesti organizzativi. Grazie alla somministrazione di una survey, interviste agli attivisti e analisi dei frame, emergono una notevole varietà di strategie, pratiche e riferimenti valoriali, la contemporanea presenza di lobby e conflitto, e la natura complessa di un fenomeno al centro dell’attenzione mediatica ma ancora poco studiato in termini sociologici.
