What the fellow says:

"I am especially grateful to the UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship Programme to have provided me the opportunity to participate and contribute to research activities in regard to issues of pressing global importance for development. This research has allowed me develop initiatives in a broad dimension, by using a methodology for advanced research to promote materials and proposals that could help my country and the Latin-American region, as well as allowing me to present results to the international community. I am extremely grateful to my host institution in Spain and, in particular, to my academic supervisor who offered her valuable insights, expertise and time."
