Hello friends of Oñati Community! I am Ángeles (Angie) Ramallo from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I studied in Oñati in 2018-2019 and I have so many wonderful memories of the Institute and the town. I am still in touch with my group of friends and I really hope to see them soon (perhaps in Oñati!)
When I finished the Master’s degree I came back to Argentina and started a doctoral program in Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). I received a doctoral grant from the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET, by its Spanish acronym). I will be working on my dissertation for the next years (I hope to finish it in 2024!) My research topic is sex markets and women’s rights, which is an issue that is gaining public interest in Argentina. After the recent legalization of abortion in December 2020, which exponentially increased feminist mobilization, sex work regulation could be one of the next important campaigns.
I am still interested in legal education. The subject of my master’s thesis was practical legal training in universities. I am currently participating in a research project on gender and legal education, and have been coordinating UBA’s Human Rights Center Mentoring Program for the last 4 years.
In the near future I would love to do research visits abroad during my years as a Ph.D. student. And I also wish to go back to Oñati, to IISL fabulous library and to have some fun on pintxo-pote’s Thursdays.
