Research Summary

During the Phd, I have been participating in research projects on three main topics:

1) The effects of adult education on subjective well-being and social capital in migrant populations. The title of the PhD thesis is "Transnational Adult Education for Migrant Populations: A Realist Evaluation of the Program Education Model for Life and Work (MEVyT)". It is a Qualitative Analysis of Learning Centres established by the Mexican National Institute for Adult Education (INEA) in Los Angeles, California.

2) The role of learning cities in the creation of sustainable development. I am co-author of the background paper for the 4th UNESCO International Conference on Learning Cities, ‘Inclusion – A Principle for Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Cities’, presented in Medellin, Colombia. October 2019.

3) The role of non-formal education and culture in tackling urban violence in Latin America. I have been invited to participate as external policy advisor to the research project “Educational peacebuilding in Medellin and Acapulco. Understanding the role of education, culture and learning in responding to crisis” within the British Academy’s Global Challenges Research Fund.
