We are very pleased to welcome Nicol Savinetti as the new ADI Coordinator. Nicol has been a member of the ADI community for many years. She holds a PhD in Social Policy from University of Tampere, Finland, and a Master’s in European Social Policy Analysis from Roskilde University.

Aside from her work on the journal, since completing her PhD, Nicol has been engaged in the cultural sector, as well as the NGO and business world working with DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging), human rights, and migration.

"I am so pleased to be back at the University, reconnecting with old colleagues and meeting new ones here at ToRS.

I look forward to meeting you!" says Nicol Savinetti.
