I am a Fulbright-Colciencias doctoral student in the Comparative International Development Education program. Broadly, I am interested in the relationships between education and mobility, particularly in contexts of armed conflicts and violence. My research has drawn on qualitative methods to explore issues concerning migration policies and practices related to migrants’ and refugees’ access to rights and social inclusion in origin and destination countries. My sociology master’s dissertation focused on how Colombian refugee children living in Ecuador experience discrimination, how their nationality and refugee status shape their relationships at the school, and how teachers handle these situations. In Colombia, my work has revolved around peacebuilding and peace education in some of the regions most affected by the armed conflict. Currently, I keep exploring the interrelationships among education, forced migration, and inclusion in Colombia.
