Ilaria Guidoni

Born in Rome in 1994, I studied Contemporary History at Sapienza University of Rome and then I moved to Turin to attend a master’s degree in International Sciences. Currently, I’m an Erasmus student at SOAS University of London, where I’m nurturing my passion for Middle East politics. In general, I’m very interested in geopolitics and international relations, but I also love reading and participating in debates related to feminism and human rights. I’m happy to write on Social News to share my knowledge not only with university fellows but also with a broader audience, hoping to defy stereotypes and false assumption that often lead to misinterpretation of the reality and of different cultures’ principles. I think that human rights are at the basis of any inter-personal relationship and that their enforcement is not only an International Organizations’ prerogative, but it starts from the bottom, from ordinary people and their actions in ordinary life.
