Edoardo Celeste

Edoardo Celeste is PhD candidate at the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin (UCD). In January 2018 he joined HIIG as a Fellow in the research area ‘Global Constitutionalism’.

His PhD thesis investigates the concept of digital constitutionalism, and in particular it analyses the role of the Internet bills of rights in the process of constitutionalisation of the Internet. He started this research during his LLM at King’s College London: his dissertation ‘Identikit for an Internet Constitution’ won the Dickson Poon Prize for the Best Dissertation in IP and Information Law. In 2017 he was awarded the Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship.

Edoardo holds a law degree and a master of specialisation from the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’, a master in EU law from the University of Paris II, and an LLM from King’s College London. He worked for the ERC-funded Horizon 2020 research project ‘Effective Nature Laws’, and he was visiting researcher at the Nexa Center for Internet and Society (Polytechnic University of Turin).

Edoardo is a member of the editorial board of the UCD Law Review, and tutor of EU constitutional and economic law at UCD Sutherland School of Law. He is currently affiliated with the UCD Centre for Human Rights, and an associate member of the doctoral programme EPEDER (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin).
