Francesca Artioli is an assistant professor (maître de conférences) of urban planning and policies at the Université Paris-Est Créteil (Ecole d’Urbanisme de Paris) and member of the Lab’Urba. She holds a PhD in political science from Sciences Po Paris (December 2014). Previous to her current appointment, she has been a fixed-term lecturer at Sciences Po Bordeaux (2013-2015), and post-doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford (Department of Politics) and associate member to Nuffield College under the OxPo Programme for 2015-2016.
Her research lies at the intersection between comparative policy analysis and urban studies. She is interested in urban policies and in central-local governments’ relations in a context of public sector reforms and austerity. She has studied urban projects, public real estate management reforms and redevelopment in France, Italy and the United Kingdom.
Recently, she has started a project on digital platforms and cities, with a focus on the regulation of short-term accommodation rentals (Airbnb) in European cities.
