Linda Ristagno

External Affairs Manager
Genève (1200)
I am manager External Affairs for IATA based in Geneva, Switzerland. In my current position, I am responsible for advocating for evidence-based policy, good practice and constructive engagement between the air sector and state regulators and to promote the social value of aviation. I am committed to improving the rights of passengers, including those with disabilities in making aviation a truly inclusive experience for all. I hold an Executive Master Diploma in International Negotiation and Policy Making with the Graduate Institute of Geneva. In my final paper, I reviewed anti-trafficking policies and regulations and drafted recommendations on how the aviation sector could leverage its position to support governments and law enforcement stem the flow of the growing phenomenon of human trafficking. That's why in my current position I work with the team, with regional and international organizations to support states regulators to prevent cases of trafficking on board of aircraft through capacity development and educational tools.
