His extended essay The Increased Flow of Non-EU Immigrants to Sicily and the Rise of the Far Right was published as a monograph in 2016 by Mediterranean Affairs, a non-for profit online media outlet. His conference paper Bitcoin: a shift in the paradigm of capitalist power-relations? A Marxist counterargument to Libertarian and Socialist Utopias was awarded an Early Career Prize by the Association for Heterodox Economics’ Academic Committee for “the quality of its writing, and its contribution to the field”.
Giuseppe has recently graduated with a first-class degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of Manchester. He is currently studying towards an MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics at the University of Manchester, where has just completed his Masters’ coursework averaging a distinction.
