I’m Edoardo Costa, from Baceno, a small village in the North of Italy. Till December I worked in Colombia at the Universidad Piloto de Colombia (Bogotá). During my experience in the Directorate of Research, I visited small villages to speak with farmers disadvantaged by the FARC-Government conflict. I’ve studied the European Union intervention in the Country through its Peace Laboratories and I worked on the production of a collaborative scientific article on the Alternative Macro-Project Model of Inclusion and Productive Innovation. At that time I produced another academic article for an Italian juridical magazine (Rivista Giuridica dell’ambiente) about the interest groups legislation in Italy and Europe.

Back to Italy recently, I’m looking for another international opportunity and I want to put myself to the max to contribute to your mission.

Due to my university degrees in Political Science and International Relations and my work experiences I am able to thoroughly analyze the European political context.
