Pension Reforms, Health Care
   Short Biography

Furio Stamati, M.Res of the European University Institute (EUI), is Ph.D Researcher at the EUI (Florence) and Junior Researcher at the European Social Observatory (OSE). His work mostly deals with the politics and political economy of pension reforms - in Europe as well as in the US - and the social distribution of retirement risks. He occasionally works on education and healthcare reforms as well. 

His articles appeared on "European Papers on the New Welfare" and "European Journal of Social Security". While working extensively on the politics and policy outcomes of Italian pension reforms, he is also a reviewer for "Regional & Federal Studies". 

Furio has recently collaborated with Bocconi University (Milan), EUDO (EUI, Florence), OSE (Brussels), NASI (Washington DC), KIHASA (Seul), CABISE (Oviedo), Associazione Bruno Trentin-Isf-Ires (Rome), FAFO foundation (Oslo), and NOVA (Oslo). His interests reach out to include political economy and the sociology of risk broadly defined, as well as the relationship between welfare and democracy.
