Brief introduction

PhD Candidate in Politics, Human Rights and Sustainability at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies.


MA in Democracy and Human Rights in South-Eastern Europe (ERMA), Sarajevo-Bologna

Academic profile

My research deals with the relation between housing, identity and culture in the case of the Romani groups and with the impact that this relation has on the housing policies directed to this group. The aim of the research is to seek for a new approach to housing able to prevent the implementation of policies leading to assimilation, segragation or an essentialised use of culture.
