 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The connection between the production of knowledge and its applicability to the analysis and resolution
of social problems has been a common denominator throughout my academic career and work
experience. For that reason I have always tried to enhance my training and professional experience in
the anthropological and social sciences by participating in the programmes of international organisms and
regional intergovernmental bodies. As a participant in programmes of the European Community (1986), the
United Nations (Buenos Aires 1989), ECLAC-Santiago de Chile (1991, 2005-2006, 2008-2009), the Rockefeller
Foundation-Venezuela (2003), Ford Foundation-Buenos Aires (2004), UNDP-Honduras (2008), and UNRISD–
Geneva (2008-2009) I have acquired a wider and deeper vision of the complex socio-economic issues
involved in development. Also, I work periodically as a consultant in some of these international
organisms.
The university training (graduate level) was in Social Anthropology, having furthered my specialisation in
International Development Cooperation (Master Program). The postgraduate studies and work experience
has been oriented to international cooperation networks and socio-political issues in contemporary Latin
America. From that perspective, I have been able to study in depth social and political processes in
several countries. My PhD thesis finished on 2008 is devoted to the analysis of contemporary social
movements in the field of civic rights, civil society, democratization process and state politics in
Argentina, a topic of great impact in the recent history of the whole region. The research explores new
citizenship conditions derived from the application of the new economic and social paradigms during the
past few decades in Latin America. Since 2001 I have supervised a research team within the Research and
Development Programmes of the National University of Rosario Science and Technology Secretariat. My
current interest is focused on issues of Participatory Budgeting Processes. Also, I am currently teaching
“Social Research Methods” at the graduate and postgraduate level. I have a considerable trajectory both
as a researcher and as part of collective interdisciplinary projects.
The whole academic experiences offered me a deeper knowledge on globalisation process, development
conditions and poverty reduction. In addition I have also worked for state programmes at local and
provincial level, and intergovernmental organizations in the fields of local development, habitat, housing,
education, health, and democratization. I have recently worked as a consultant for the ECLAC- Women
and Development Division in a project aimed at understanding the links between social research and
public policy and more recently for the Social Development Division (2008-2009) and evaluating Social
Innovation Programmes. In my experience of technical assistance to governments and other bodies in the
formulation and implementation of policies and socio-economic development programmes, I have taken
part of interdisciplinary research and policy-making teams. This has provided me with the background to
elaborate socio-economic projects and reports, and to organize and manage teams and task-forces.
