Hallo everyone! My name is Elisa Bertolini and I’m Associate Professor of Comparative Public Law at Bocconi University.
I do research in comparative constitutional law.
My main research fields include: 1) The Japanese constitutional law, with a particular focus on the Japanese Supreme Court. 2) The constitutional arrangements of micro states. 3) The Internet governance, with a specific focus on the Chinese experience and the progressive building up of a surveillance state. A further profile that I started to investigate quite recently is the one of fake news and alternative facts. However, the most recent one is related to the so called cancel culture; the focus here is related to the complex relationship existing between history and memory and the approach the state should adopt towards both of them, while protecting at the same time the academic freedom and the freedom of expression.
