Farewell and good luck to Stefania

In September 2009, Stefania Milan took over from Benoit Challand the tasks of the EUDO CITIZENSHIP main research assistant for the EUI team in Florence. Stefania’s contract for EUDO CITIZENSHIP has ended on 31 December 2010. During the last quarter of 2010 she had already started to work on a reduced contract during a postdoctoral engagement in Montreal. Her position and tasks have been taken over by Guido Tintori. Stefania had previously worked on social movements and alternative media and is now returning to this core field of her academic expertise. She is a natural born multitasker, a whirlwind full of energy, and a great collaborator. On behalf of the whole EUDO CITIZENSHIP team, I wish her all good luck and success in 2011 and beyond.
