Researcher for the Project CORRODE



Carlotta Giustozzi (born 1987) is a doctoral researcher in the CORRODE project at the chair for social stratification and social policy since November 2014. She holds a master’s degree in social sciences from Humboldt University Berlin and has been a visiting student at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

Within the CORRODE project her focus lies on the erosion of political trust in the Great Recession and how it is shaped by welfare institutions and social policy across Europe and the US.

For her doctoral thesis she analyses the accumulation of labour market disadvantage and its effects on social integration across regional contexts in Germany.
