The aim of my activities within ECPC is to use my legal background to enrich the advocacy proposals, assess their content and strengthen the EU and the National States commitments. My work is focused on the “Right to be forgotten” project, promoting the end of discriminatory practices and ensuring access to financial services for cancer survivors in Europe. The objectives consist of facilitating the advocacy activity of ECPC, providing a clearer legal background about the access to financial services for cancer survivors in the EU Member States, and developing the opportunity of a new regulatory framework. The main goal of this project is to contribute to providing an instrument to improve the quality of life and restore the wellbeing (including the economic one) of cancer survivors.
I gained my Ph.D. in Law at the University of Salerno and the University of Strasbourg with a joint doctoral program. My research commitments have been particularly focused on the concept of responsibility for business in the context of public health issues, International and European Law and Human Rights Law. I had previous work experiences at the Council of Europe along with experienced law firms in Italy and France.
Because it should concern all of us and there is so much still to be done. Patients, cancer survivors, their families, professionals, the institutions and the civil society, each of us have a proper role to play against the multiple challenges faced to beat cancer and ensure dignity to people.
