Interests

Dr Caterina Milo’s research interests lie in the area of medical law and ethics. Particularly informed consent, doctor-patient relationship and reproductive ethics.

Her doctoral thesis, funded by the AHRC, was titled 'Informed consent and abortion: reframing the first medical encounter in England and Wales’. Through this work Caterina  provided a legal and ethical analysis of the informed consent literature in the context of abortion, and suggested both possible legal and policy-oriented implications. The ultimate aim of this project was to highlight the central relevance of the principles of medical partnership and women’s authentic autonomy in decision-making processes following unplanned pregnancies.

Caterina is also Research scholar of the Unesco Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights (Rome), where she co-leads the research group ‘Dignity and Equity in women’s health issues’.
