About me

Before joining Wikimedia Europe, in April 2023, I worked at CSA (Conséil superieur de l'audiovisuel) as EU Affairs Advisor, where among other things I dealt with the works of ERGA (European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services) and contributed running the 2022 ERGA chairmanship. Previously, I worked in the European Parliament, as Legal and Political Advisor, dealing with a plethora of subjects ranging from EU copyright rules, media law, to cultural and constitutional issues, including parliamentary ethics & transparency as well as rules of procedures. My interests are the protection of fundamental rights such as freedom of expression, privacy & access to information, media law & policy, EU law, democratic theories & e-democracy, new technologies, cooperative projects, degrowth & the commons.

My work

As part of Wikimedia Europe, my job is to ensure that Wikimedia projects and the Wikimedia movement are preserved when a new piece of legislation is passed. We do our best to ensure that lawmakers widely understand the Wikimedia model and respect its functioning and values. In this sense, I closely work with the Foundation's public policy team and the European national chapters.

However, Wikimedia Europe does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of Wikimedia Europe or Wikimedia Foundation.
