Damiano is a PhD student in International Relations at the London School of Economics and his research focuses on the relationship between international financial flows and human rights protection. While in his PhD thesis he aims at explaining variation in the adoption of human rights conditionality by the development agencies of European Union Member States, Damiano also studies the (positive and negative) human rights impacts of business activities. In this respect, he works as a Research Assistant at the LSE Sustainable Finance Project and he is Coordinator of "Business and Human Rights in Italy" (a research project which advises the Italian government on the adoption of a National Action Plan to implement the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights). Damiano was the organiser of a one-day Research Workshop on business and human rights at LSE (http://tinyurl.com/ccb3mxl) and will convene an entire Section on business and human rights at the 2013 Annual Conference of the European Consortium of Political Research.
Damiano is also a World Economic Forum Global Shaper and a former editor of Millennium: Journal of International Studies.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
