Donatella Della Porta

This is the website of Donatella della Porta. I'm sociologist and political scientist, and I have done research on the good and bad sides of politics (and democracy), using qualitative and quantitative methods.

You will find here some information, links and documents related to my research, teaching, PhD supervision, publications and other activities.

You're very welcome to look around and download whatever you need.
