Bio
Gabriel Echeverría is Adjunct Professor of Latin American Studies at SAIS Europe
ERC Post-Doctoral Researcher, University of Trento

Gabriel Echeverría is a political scientist with a BA in International Relations from the University of Bologna and a PhD in International Migration and Social Integration from the Complutense University of Madrid. His research interests have focused on those phenomena that somehow defy traditional social and political institutions. In this respect, international migrations appeared to be a key phenomenon. Their "subversive nature" and their "productive challenge" not only force categories to be rethought, but, in so doing, stimulate the opening of new potentialities, the space for a reformulation of paradigms and behaviors. His doctoral research project inquired into the experience of irregular migrants in different contexts and combined a social systems theoretical approach with empirical research methodologies. The results of this work were published in 2020 in the IMISCOE/Springer open access book "Towards a systemic theory of irregular migration. Explaining Ecuadorian Irregular Migration in Amsterdam and Madrid." Other topics of interest and publications have been citizenship and Latin American studies. Since 2017, Echeverría works as researcher and instructional designer at the International Cooperation Centre (Trento) where he is responsible for the development of the e-learning program. From 2020, he works as a ERC post-doctoral researcher in Trento University.
