Nausica Palazzo

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Comparative Law with 6-year experience in the regulation of intimate relationships. I earned a cum laude Ph.D. from the University of Trento (Italy) and LL.M. from the University of Michigan, where I also have been a Grotius Research Scholar and Fulbright Fellow.

I recently published a book with Hart Publishing on the Legal Recognition of Non-Conjugal Families in the US, Canada, and Europe. By the term, I refer to families of adult friends or relatives that lack a sexual component. My scholarly articles have appeared on the Michigan Journal of Gender and Law, and on the Onati Socio-Legal Series. Ultimately, I have in the pipeline a forthcoming edited collection on the alliance between queer and religious groups to recognize non-traditional families with Anthem Press (New York).
