About me

Domenico is a lecturer in Public International Law and Public Law at the University of Stirling (UK), where he is the module coordinator of the LLB courses in Public Law and Legal System, and in International Human Rights Law.

He holds a PhD from the University of Aberdeen (UK) sponsored by the Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL). Before beginning his PhD research, Domenico qualified as a solicitor in Italy practising in the area of criminal law.

The bulk of Domenico's research focuses on the regulation and the accountability of non-governmental organisations (NGOs). He is currently working on a monograph, which will be published by Routledge. The monograph examines methods of self-regulation in response to recent NGO scandals, identifies new accountability routes, and recommends proposals for sectoral reform. Domenico’s works have been published by leading peer-reviewed journals including the Human Rights Law Review (Oxford University Press), Non-Profit Policy Forum (De Gruyter), Journal of Human Rights Practice (Oxford University Press), Voluntary Sector Review (Bristol University Press) and International Criminal Law Review (Brill). Most recently Domenico's work has featured in Forbes (2020) and OpenDemocracy (2019).

Domenico presented his research at international events organised and hosted by the Centre for Global Cooperation Research (Germany, October 2020), Copenhagen Business School (Denmark, March 2018), Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam (The Netherlands, July 2018), The University of Bologna (Italy, March 2018) and University College Dublin (Ireland, September 2017). He is member of the Goias State University (Brazil) Multidisciplinary Group in Human Rights and is serving as member of Conference Academic Committee for the 15th International Society of Third-Sector Research (ISTR) Conference at Concordia University (Canada, July 2022).

Domenico has advised several international-NGOs including the Danube Civil Society Forum, a Serbian-based NGO campaigning for environmental protection. He is a trustee of Global Minorities Alliance, a Scottish-based charity campaigning for minority rights worldwide, and has trained humanitarian personnel working in refugee camps in Iraq and Lebanon managed by the Italian-based NGO “Un Ponte Per…”
