Susanna Mancini (Ph.D., European University Institute, 1995; JD, University of Bologna, 1991) is a full professor and the Chair of Comparative Constitutional Law at the University of Bologna School of Law. She approaches law in its cultural dimension through which it incorporates social practices and features in the construction of social relations. She is interested in exploring how race and gender-related social and cultural constructs have shaped the balance of power and privilege in a liberal society, and in the role of the law in perpetuating and/or combating the marginalization of women and of racial, religious and sexual minorities. Her work explores issue of law and religion, reproductive rights, the partnership of feminism and multiculturalism, and the protection of ethnic minorities. Her latest publications include The Conscience Wars (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming, 2017, with M. Rosenfeld) and Comparative Constitutional Law. Cases and Materials (with Dorsen Rosenfeld, Sajo and Baer, West, 2016).
