Before entering academia, he clerked at the Court of Justice of the European Union, worked as Teaching Assistant at the College of Europe in Bruges and qualified as an attorney at law in New York in 2004.
During the last years, Alemanno’s research has been centred on the role of science and expertise within the emerging law of risk regulation in both the EU and the WTO legal orders. In particular, he is interested in the relationship between the regulatory competence of states in furtherance of domestic policies of general interest and concern, such as public health and food safety, and the preservation of a liberal international trade framework. His current academic work addresses the interaction between consumer concerns/information and trade rules. His newest research area is about the broader intellectual debate on the role of public authorities in shaping consumer preferences and lifestyle choices.
He has published widely in the areas of EU law, international economic law and risk regulation, including the books Trade in Food – Regulatory and Judicial Approaches in the EU and the WTO (Cameron May, 2007) and Governing Disasters – The Challenges of Emergency Risk Regulation (Edward Elgar, 2011). He has taught courses on European Law, WTO law, Risk Regulation in the US and Europe, International Public Health Law, European Affairs and European Legal Remedies,.
