I am a lecturer in Business and Human Rights in a Master programme organized by the University of Turin, Collegio Carlo Alberto and International University College of Turin,  since 2016. In addition I have lectured in several occasions at the University of Bicocca in Milan, Italy on topics related to the employability and institutional governance of the labour market, adopting a theoretical framework applicable to single countries studies as well as to cross-country comparative analyses. These lectures have been given to PhD students of the University of Bicocca. 

Currently I lecture and coordinate a course on: 

  • Business and Human Rights, course organized for students of the Master programme in Comparative Law, Economics and Finance, hosted by the International University College of Turin, University of Turin and Collegio Carlo Alberto. I have been teaching this course since 2016.

In 2016 I coordinated and lectured a course on: 

  • Working conditions in the Global Supply Chains, course organized for students of a Master in Food, Law and Finance, hosted by University of Turin and International University College of Turin.

Societal impact

I have been working alongside United Nations labour Agency - ILO since 2009, in different capacities and different offices: Headquarters office in Geneva, international training center in Turin, and as a national coordinator of the ILO office for Montenegro. In these functions I assisted states, businesses and workers in building fair, decent and sustainable labour markets, through institutional and capacity building reform processes. This work has been informed by my research and vice versa - my PhD research has been informed and influenced by the service to the UN. I am up to date involved occasionaly in the work with this UN agency, as an expert and on a consultancy basis.
