CV de Gaël Martin-Micallef


I have been working for 15 years in a multinational context, at the European Commission for Democacry through Law (Venice Commission) of the Council of Europe. I deal with projects in the electoral field and the field of political parties. This is definitely an enriching multicultural experience!

Since its creation in 1949, the Council of Europe has been a force for peace and co-operation, anchored in our common heritage, in human rights and democracy. With the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the spread of democratic values throughout Europe, the Organisation gained a new political dimension. Today, the Council of Europe embodies the shared commitment of some 800 million Europeans to human rights, democracy and the rule of law among 48 member states.

Thanks to this international experience, I developed managerial and project management competencies in international law and international relationships.

I am currently available for proposal of partnership in legal issues, consulting or publishing, more precisely on international law, elections and fraud issues.

Do not hesitate to contact me for further details!
