Giulia Andrighetto PhD in Philosophy, University of Rome La Sapienza, 2007. She is a researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC) at CNR and the coordinator of the Laboratory of Agent Based Social Simulation (LABSS). She is also researcher at Mälardalen University, Västerås, Sweden.
Giulia Andrighetto held prior academic appointments at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute (2012-2017) and as Max Weber Fellow also at the European University Institute (2010-2011).
Giulia’s research examines the nature and dynamics of social norms, namely how norms may emerge and become stable, why norms may suddenly change, how is it possible that inefficient or unpopular norms survive, and what motivates people to obey norms. To answer these questions and build cognitively grounded models of the emergence and change of social norms, she combine theoretical models with behavioral and simulation experiments.
Her work has been published in more than 80 international publications. On the topic of social norms, she has recently published the book Minding Norms (Oxford University Press).
She was awarded Ricercat@mente
Prize for Best Italian researcher under 35 in the field of Social Sciences & Humanities, by the National Research Council and the Accademia dei Lincei in 2013.
She participated in several international projects. She was the Principal Investigator of the CNR-ISTC unit in the FP7 project GLODERS (2012-2015), investigating the dynamics of criminal organizations. She is currently the Principal Investigator of the CNR-ISTC unit of the H2020 project PROTON (2016-2019), focusing on the processes of recruitment to organised crime and terrorist networks, of the project of national interest PRIN 14ALL (2019-2022), investigating the mechanisms of intergroup conflicts, and the Principal Investigator of the 5 years Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation grant Norm Change (2017-2022), an interdisciplinary project to investigate how harmful social norms can be changed.
