Former Visiting Researcher of the Research Unit


Tiziana Nazio is a Marie Curie Fellow researcher in the research group Demography and Inequality within the research unit Dynamics of Social Inequalities. Her project CARe in an INterGenerational context (CARING), explores how changes in early family formation trajectories across birth cohorts reflect in later intergenerational relations.

She is tenured Senior Researcher at Turin University (IT, since 2008) and Affiliate Fellow at Collegio Carlo Alberto (since 2010), where she was co-leader of the work-package exploring family drivers on young people's employment within the STYLE project. Recently she served one term as elected member of the executive committee of the European Sociological Association - ESA (2013-15), as Chair of the Local Organisation Committee for ESA 11th conference (Torino 2011-2013, over 2600 participants) and Chair of the Conference Program Committee for ESA 12th conference (Prague 2015, over 3400 participants).
