In the seminar cycle on Vulnerability and Insecurity organised by Costanzo Ranci (Laboratory of Social Policies), I will be presenting my project MSCA VINE in the frame of the Eccellence Project of DASTtU Department. The seminar will revolve around a theorisation of risk and vulnerability, and its relationship with territorial fragility.

During the presentation, I will show how local studies will benefit from the application of the frame of social vulnerability to study the locally-based impact of new social risks. In particular, I will stress the role of intersectionality to put in evidence the multiplicative disadvantage suffered by women in fragile territories.
