MY ACTIVITIES

My work is part of the study of Geographical Indications (GI) at French, European and Ecuadorian level. More specifically, the aim of my research is to understand the cultural and legal dimension of Geographical Indications in France as well as in Europe. It will then be implemented in Ecuador in accordance with local laws and cultures. Thus, this thesis aims to contribute to the valorization of products of Ecuadorian terroirs and to the heritage of rural areas.
