 5. Research interests. In the 1980s Guderzo focused his research and published essays on Italian anti-fascism (‘Giustizia e Libertà a Pavia negli anni Trenta’, Annali di storia pavese, 1982-83) and British decolonisation in Africa (‘L’indipendenza del Ghana’, Storia delle Relazioni Internazionali, 1991). Later on he wrote books on Spain’s neutrality in World War II (Madrid e l’arte della diplomazia, 1995), the US attitude towards European integration in the 1960s (Interesse nazionale e responsabilità globale, 2000) and US relations with Latin America in the Carter years (Ordine mondiale e buon vicinato, 2012). He has co-edited books on raw materials and the international system (Diplomazia delle risorse, 2004; Russian ed., 2008), the EEC/EU enlargement (2004: l’allargamento dell’Unione europea, 2005), Spain in the last years of the Franco regime (L’ultimo franchismo, 2009), the international system in 1975-85 (The Globalization of the Cold War, 2010), the EEC and EU “foreign policies” (The External Relations of the European Union, 2015), current issues in international history (Nuove questioni di Storia delle relazioni internazionali, 2015) and the euro (A Monetary Hope for Europe, 2015).

He has led a number of national and international research teams on the above-mentioned subjects in the last 15 years.

6. International programmes and policy-relevant reports and activities. Given his past training and present interest for multi-disciplinary studies combining history and social sciences methodologies, among other activities Guderzo published two reports (2010) on international multi-stakeholder partnerships for reconciliation, peacebuilding, empowerment of vulnerable people and human security in post-conflict contexts (Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo) for the ‘Multipart’ project, co-financed by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (Theme 8, ‘Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities’), in which he led the Florence University team. He also was the contract person for a Tempus IV programme co-financed by the European Commission and co-ordinated by the Universities of Florence and Beograd, “Development of Public Administration and Management Studies in Serbia” (2008-13). Frequently involved in peer-reviewing processes, Guderzo has served many times in Brussels as an independent expert for the EC (Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes).

 7. International experience. He can read, speak and understand a number of languages. He has travelled extensively all over Europe and around the world, as a free-lance journalist and tour operator in his youth, later on as an academic for research, conferences on invitation and in order to promote international exchanges on behalf of the Universities of Urbino and Florence. In 2009-10, in particular, he devoted much time to academic and scientific relations with Eastern Europe and Asia, traveling to Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Afghanistan and Australia.
