Anna Berti Suman is Research Fellow at Luiss School of Law, Rome, within ‘LabGov - the Laboratory for the Governance of the City as a Commons’, with the mission to explore the law as an enabling tool for accelerating responses to climate change, biodiversity loss and water scarcity. Earlier, she worked the project ‘EFFIGIES - Efficiency in Justice and Sustainability’ aimed at developing solutions to improve judicial rights protection at the School of Law, University of Florence. She was Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship grantee and formerly Dutch Research Council fellow at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, Ispra, Italy, from June 2020 until August 2023. She founded and still curates the ‘Sensing for Justice’ project aimed at exploring the potential of civic monitoring as a source of evidence for environmental litigation and as a tool to foster environmental mediation. She is also Qualified Barrister, admitted to the Bar of Rome, following climate and environmental law cases at ‘Systasis - Centre for the Prevention and Management of Environmental Conflicts’, Milan. Anna obtained her PhD in 2020 after a four-year trajectory at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society, The Netherlands. Her PhD project aimed at investigating how civic monitoring influences the governance of environmental health risk and how the practice can be integrated within institutional models of risk governance. Anna has a background in Law from the University of Bologna and Transnational Law from the University of Geneva. She has work and research experience in health law and technology (UK), environmental litigation (Italy, The Netherlands, Ecuador) and water law (Chile).
