Career Overview

I am a lawyer. My current job requires in-depth knowledge of ethnic and human rights issues. Based in Columbia, I advise on legal issues, specifically ethnic and human rights issues. I also work in the field with the ethnic communities, and I consult for governmental institutions regarding different issues that are related issues of justice for vulnerable ethnic. Now that Colombia is in the post-agreement after having made a peace agreement with the guerrilla FARC, my company works to fulfill the commitments made through the peace process, that should benefit the ethnic groups that were historically the most affected by the conflict and discrimination.
