Welcome

Alejandro has ample experience in migration and youth research, policy evaluation, teaching, and education management in Canada and Mexico. He is currently a doctoral candidate in Sociology with specialization in Political Economy at Carleton University, and besides holding numerous awards and scholarships, he is also a Vanier Scholar, the Government of Canada’s most prestigious international award for doctoral students.

Alejandro is currently a Board of Directors member and Communications Chair of the Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. He was also Chair of the Committee for Refugee Issues, and member of the Advisory Search Committee for Vice-President (Research and International) at Carleton University.

Alejandro’s current research analyzes how the contexts and immigration reasons of Mexican youth, along with their experiences of economic integration in Ottawa and Montreal (Canada), shape the type of ties they maintain with Mexico and their (potential) transnational practices.

CALACS

I am currently a Board of Directors member and Chair of the Communications Committee of The Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS).

I am quite proud to say that we have a brand-new webpage at CALACS. With the technical knowledge and support of Bees on a Bike and under my direction, we created a webpage that not only has a spectacular and rotating visual design, but also offers an internal member’s individualized dashboard. Through this dashboard, our members can submit articles for revision to our peer reviewed Canadian Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, submit candidacies for our various awards, vote on our elections and motions, participate in virtual forums and working groups, submit articles, panels, and workshops to our annual congress, list their expertise in our experts page, as well as renew their membership and register for congress! Take a look!
