Alice Baroni is a PhD candidate in International Relations/Political Science at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and a Research Assistant for the Violence Prevention (VIPRE) Initiative at the Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding.

Alice holds a MA degree in International Relations/Political Science from the Graduate Institute, as well as a MA degree with honors in International Relations from the University of Bologna and a BA degree with honors in Sociology and Political Science from the University of Milan. During her Masters, she studied one year at Sciences Po Lyon, where she specialized on the Middle East and North Africa region. 

Her current PhD research explores the paradox of solidarity waged from within hegemonic systems and conditions of structural asymmetry. Taking as a case study Jewish-Israeli activism for Palestinian rights, she engages with theories of hegemony and counter-hegemony and applies them at the micro-level of intersubjective encounters and everyday praxes in a settler colonial context.
