Eleonora Drudi was enrolled in the two-year Master programme “World Politics and International Relations” at the University of Pavia, Italy, and completed an Erasmus semester at Universiteit Gent. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Roma Tre and her Bachelor thesis was entitled “Whaling in the recent jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice” with a focus on the sentence between Australia versus Japan.
During her undergraduate studies, she interned at ISAG, an Italian geopolitical and foreign affairs institute, where she worked under the "Infrastructure and Territorial Development" programme. During the internship she carried out various tasks including writing reports, collecting data and publications on the website of the association. She showed great interest in the research activities of the program concerning issues related to food security and climate change. In this regard, she has additionally collaborated in the drafting of the article "Climate change and food security: the case of El Nino" and in the drafting of a report entitled "Falls on the Italian agri-food system of the TTIP agreement". Another important experience from which she gained inspiration was volunteering at the student association AIESEC, in Rome, where she had the opportunity to work with various NGOs.
Her interests focus primarily on migration, humanitarian actions and more specifically on internal displacement people and ethnic minorities.
At UNU-CRIS Eleonora worked under the research programme “The United Nations and Regional Public Goods” under the supervision of Madeleine Hosli until the end of May 2019.
