Bernardo Rangoni joined the European University Institute (EUI) as a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow in Law in 2017, right after having earned his PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics (LSE).

His research has appeared (or is currently under review) in the Journal of European Public Policy, Regulation & Governance, European Law Journal, and Oxford University Press.

A key element concerns the perceived move from traditional hierarchical 'command and control' to new modes of 'experimentalist governance', involving (i) more inclusive, (ii) recursive rule-making and revision (iii) informed by the comparison (iv) of different decentralized implementation experiences. He is currently analyzing the relationship between experimentalist institutional architectures, actual decision-making processes, and outcomes on substantives policies and preferences across electricity, gas, telecoms, finance, and pharmaceuticals.
