Meet the Researchers from LUISS:


Gianfranco Pellegrino

Associated Investigor

Gianfranco Pellegrino is Associate Professor at LUISS Guido Carli Rome, where he teaches Political Philosophy and History of Political Thought. His interests are in distributive justice theories, migration and environmental ethics. He wrote on global justice, on the ethics of climate change and the Anthropocene  (“Robust Responsibility for Climate Harms”, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, 2018) and on climate migrants (“Climate Refugees: A Case for Protection”, in G.

Giacomo Sillari is Associate Professor at LUISS Guido Carli Rome, where he teaches Behavioural economics and psychology and Methodology of social sciences. His research lies at the intersection of philosophy and economics. He has contributed to the literature on the epistemic foundations of game theory and has investigated the role and nature of social conventions and norms from the viewpoint of game theory, with applications to broader philosophical issues.
These interests have recently led him to do experimental research investigating the role of knowledge and common knowledge in coordination tasks.

Giacomo holds a Ph.D. and an MA in Political Theory from the University of Manchester, and an MA in Philosophy from the University of Genoa.

Giacomo is mainly interested in moral and political philosophy, with special interests in the following areas: moral equality; respect and other evaluative attitudes; and, distributive justice. His work has appeared in Philosophical Studies, European Journal of Political Theory, and Ethical Theory and Moral Practice.
