Ten years of researching and teaching experience in the relationship between communication, citizenship, development, democracy and human rights in Latin America and The Caribbean. The work that I have been developing in recent years focuses on the study of social and communicative processes. This is from a civil society perspective, journalistic agendas, mass media and armed conflict. It focuses on the relationship between communication and politics from a communicative citizenship point of view.

I have been working for the last eight years with different international, national, local and multilateral organizations such as United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), International Organization for Migration (IOM), UNESCO, Social Research Centre and Popular Education (CINEP), Colombian Government (Ministry of Culture and Ministry of Education), Centre of Competence in Communication for Latin America – C3 – Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation (FES), Javeriana University, Media for Peace, International Federation of Journalist (IFJ), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Antonio Nariño Project (PAN), the Foundation for Freedom of the Press (FLIP), Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation in Central America (FES AMERICA CENTRAL), and others institutions.

I am the author and co-author of different books about the relationship between communication, democracy and human rights. Some recent examples are: “Visibilities, voices and matters related to Afro Colombian issues in the mass media” (2010), “What we are removing of war. Citizen’s media in contexts of armed conflict in Colombia” (2008), “Making the virtual real.
