Inclusive Development


Irene Fattacciu

Irene Fattacciu’s research interests follow two main strands: issues of inclusive development, in particular socio-economic inequalities, educational poverty, gender gaps and disability; globalisation, colonialism and racism from a sociological and global history perspective. She works with mixed methods, integrating different disciplinary approaches and qualitative/quantitative methods.

She has been working in ARCO since early 2022, where she researches citizenship, poverty, redistribution and disability.

She has a PhD in History and Civilization from the European University Institute (2011) and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Turin (2019).
Over the years she has worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the European University Institute (Vasco da Gama Fellow), the University of Turin, the University of Tuscia, carrying out various research projects, participating in training activities and working on European projects.

She has taught Global History at the Master in International Relations and European Studies at the University of Florence, Colonial and Postcolonial History at the Master in Area and Global Studies for International Cooperation at the University of Turin, and teaches Food Cultures of Latin America at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo.
