   Short Biography

Sebastiano Sabato completed his PhD in Political Science at the Italian Institute for Human Sciences (SUM) in Florence in February 2013, with a doctoral thesis on "The Impact of the Open Method of Coordination on National Policies: an Analysis of the Peer Review meetings in the Open Method of Coordination for Social Protection and Social Inclusion". He holds a Master's Degree in Economics and Politics of European Integration from the University of Bologna, Faculty of Political Sciences (Forlì). 
Currently, his research interests include occupational welfare, minimum income and social policy more generally (both at the European and national levels) as well as European governance (notably the OMC in the domains of social protection, social inclusion and employment as well as the Europe 2020 Strategy). Since February 2013, he has had a Post-Doc research grant at the University of Milan (Department of Social and Political Sciences), where he has been working with others on the project "Combating Poverty in Europe: Re-organising Active Inclusion through Participatory and Integrated Modes of Multilevel Governance" (COPE).
