MILE 11, Alessandro Marongiu


Alessandro Marongiu graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and International Relations from the La Sapienza Università di Roma in 2008. His thesis, entitled “The Role of International Organizations in Improving Access to Essential Medicines”, explored the topic of basic human rights in Developing Countries and evaluated the lack of coordination among various International Organizations such as the WTO and WHO. This research led him to study international cooperation and global governance in general and he achieved a Master's degree in International Relations in 2010. His thesis focused on an empirical research of Foreign Direct Investment in the EU. This extensive work received top marks and a cum laude honour from the faculty commission.

A specific interest in trade-related topics led Alessandro to Berne and to the MILE programme to specialise in International Law and Economics and, in particular, Intellectual Property Rights, FDI, and the relationship of trade to development. He spends his spare time with his family and friends and his greatest passion is travel.
