About Me

I have studied Law, as well as European Studies and Ethics. For the last twenty years I have worked as a legal and social advisor regarding the shaping of social policy for vulnerable social groups or those who are threatened with exclusion. I was fortunate to represent Greece, in European forums regarding the safeguarding of human rights and their equal integration in all aspects of economic, cultural and social level since 1998.

Since 2004, I have served as a consultant for former Prime Ministers / Ministers for the formulation and or shaping of social policy, social structures and services, promoting the equitable assertion of human rights.
