ANDEVA is a French NGO that, as the National Association for the defense of asbestos victims, brings together many victims’ groups, families, and public health activists concerned with problems linked to asbestos. In 2011, ANDEVA members numbered approximately 23,000. The organization disseminates information through its website – most of which is in French, with some items in English – on asbestos diseases, legislation, asbestos disease compensation in France, prevention of asbestos disease, and the international situation. Its official aims are to promote solidarity between asbestos victims, provide them with legal advice, strengthen prevention of asbestos diseases in France and abroad and, in particular, obtain a worldwide ban on asbestos.
“The Turin Trail: The Case for the Prosecution” is ANDEVA’s thorough documentation of the groundbreaking trial in Turin, Italy, which brought charges against two senior executives of Eternit, a multinational asbestos cement producer.
