Dott. Anna Francesca Masiero

Member of the Core Crimes cluster.

Since July 2021 Anna Francesca Masiero is Research Fellow at the Department of Law of the University of Ferrara, subject of the research: "Criminal law massimario and law foreseeability: the making of the precedent in the european legal area" (referent professor: Prof. D. Castronuovo).

In March 2020 she obtained a PhD within the framework of the Doctoral School of the University of Ferrara in European Union Law and National Legal Systems (referent professors: Prof. Alessandro Bernardi and Prof. Donato Castronuovo).

She studied law at Ferrara University and in March 2017 she graduated with highest honours, discussing a thesis in European Criminal Law entitled “Criminal prospects of the accession of the European Union to the ECHR”.

During the three-year period of PhD research, she explored the themes of the multilevel protection of fundamental rights, the development of the principles of criminal law, from both a national and a supranational perspective, the strategies to combat terrorism and, more generally, organized crime in the European legal space. In particular, her PhD research deals with the so-called "differentiated strategies" in the fight against organized crime in the (trans)national panorama.

After obtaining her PhD, she focused on economic criminal law, with particular reference to the criminal liability of legal entities and the remedial mechanisms in various areas of business law (such as bankruptcy and tax areas).

She passed the Bar exam in September 2020 before the Court of Appeal of Bologna. She is a Lawyer at the Ferrara Bar.
