During the last decade I have been invited to present my work at numerous institutions in more than 30 countries. This includes some of the most prestigious universities in the world such as NYU, Columbia, Princeton, UCD San Diego, University of Miami, the EUI in Florence, Oxford, Edinburgh, NUS in Singapore, MGIMO in Moscow, McGill in Montreal and many others. I have also been invited by numerous governments, international organisations and legal bodies, including the Colombian Congress, the New York City Bar Association, the European Commission, the Ecuadorian Ombudsman, the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Brazilian Ministry of Labour.
