As Network Coordination & Development Officer, Giulia coordinates together with Samuel the activities with our members and with a broader group of civil society stakeholders across Europe and beyond.

At Finance Watch we believe that a substantial rethink of finance in the public perspective requires an interdisciplinary approach considering all aspects of our global society affected by finance.

Giulia holds an MA in economics, and specialised in microfinance at Solvay Brussels School Economics & Management. She is currently a PhD Candidate at the European PhD in Socio-Economic and Statistical Studies programme with a research investigating the benefits of a greater diversity – with a focus on the gender perspective – within the financial sector, by exploring the dysfunctions of its corporate governance structure and behaviors. She is also a coordinator of the Gender and Economics Working Group of the Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute for New Economic Thinking. Previously she has worked on microfinance in Italy and as a researcher on environmental risk management in Central America.
