Alexis Rodríguez Suárez

 

I graduated in Social Anthropology (UAEM, Mexico) and have completed Postgraduate program in Youth Studies and Youth Policy (Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universitat de Lleida and Girona University) and I am a doctoral candidate in the program Ph.D. in Urban Anthropology and Social Movements in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Currently I am part of IFAM, a Research Group of the Fundació Pere Tarrés and the Universitat Ramon Llull, where we work on the project YouthME: Youth and Migration in Europe, funded by the Daphne Programme of the European Union.

My role in this project is to design the basic guide and working materials for the Empowerment workshop and Crossworker course. I provide especially knowledge about the use of audiovisual language. I am also guiding a group of teenagers and young people in the workshops. On the other hand, I also carry out functions as trainer with European partners.

 
Since 2004 I have worked as a researcher on migration and youth. These were all different research projects, with various approaches, but where the constants are migration and youth. I can highlight my participation on researches on cultural consumption and 'Latin' identity, Street Organizations, Public Space and Cultural Practices and Processes of exclusion and inclusion. Since 2010 I’ve started the first steps into social intervention in a project addressed to youth at social risk that aims to manage a process of transition to autonomy.
