Policy Analyst on Democracy and Participation

Matteo joined FEPS in January 2022 as a policy advisor in the field of democracy and participation.

From 2015 to 2018, he worked in Berlin at the peacebuilding NGO Berghof Foundation. As a researcher, he studied inclusive peace processes, European Union support to peacebuilding centred governance reform and the role of citizen participation in transitions from autocracy to democracy. Matteo has published in international peer-reviewed academic journals and edited volumes on these topics.

From 2019 to 2021, he worked for the Flemish Peace Institute in Brussels, where he researched international firearms trafficking and firearms violence in Europe, focusing on EU policies on these issues. Several policy reports are the result of this work.

He holds an MSc from Uppsala University in Peace and Conflict Studies.
