Dr Stefano Angeleri
LL.B., M.L., PhD
T: 091 493946
Dr Stefano Angeleri is a postdoctoral researcher at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway, since September 2019. Dr Angeleri obtained a Bachelor of Law and a Master’s in Law at the University of Milan ‘Statale’, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. After graduation, he qualified as a lawyer and practiced law while volunteering in a local NGO for migrant rights in Milan, until he started his PhD at NUI Galway in 2015. He successfully completed his School of Law-funded PhD on ‘the right to health of irregular migrants: an exploration of enabling and constraining factors in international and European human rights law’ in 2019.
Dr Angeleri has established an excellent network of research contacts and collaborations, participating in and now coordinating the IE/UK section of the Academic Network on the European Social Charter and Social Rights, and engaging in research projects with the University of Verona (Italy) and University of Rosario (Colombia) on the rights of migrants in precarious working and living conditions. Dr Angeleri is writing a book on the interplay between state sovereignty, health and irregular migration in international and European human rights law, based on his PhD dissertation. He has published in the European Journal of Migration and Law, in edited collections, and has several projects and publications in progress, in particular, on the effectiveness of health rights for irregular migrants in Italy and Colombia. His research, presented at several national and international conferences and seminars, aims at developing arguments that are able to clarify the scope of socioeconomic rights, extend health coverage and enhance the protection and promotion of vulnerable migrant rights in international, regional and national law.
At the Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway, he is currently entrusted with conducting and monitoring research on the implementation of fundamental rights in Ireland in areas as varied as equality, racism, minority rights, immigration and asylum, data protection, rights of the child, access to justice and disability. This research contributes to the FRANET Project of the Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union. Dr Angeleri teaches at both undergraduate and postgraduate level: he is the module instructor of LW 5109 ‘European Migration Law’ in the LLM in International Migration and Refugee Law and Policy and contributes to the teaching of HR 101 ‘International Human Rights’ and HR 201 ‘Human Rights Regional Systems’ in the BA Connect with Human Rights.
