Sonia Garzon is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Department of International Politics at Aberystwyth University, and in fall 2020 she will be a visiting researcher at Warwick Interdisciplinary Research Centre for International Development (WICID). Her research lies at the intersections of peacebuilding, transitional justice, and gender and its intersectionalities. In particular, Sonia’s MSC research interrogates how race, gender, class, and spatial intersectionalities become entangled in resistance to peace. Building on the case study of Colombia, her work explores how these intersectional movements can move towards adversarial forms of peacebuilding. Sonia’s previous research has examined the gender impact of forced displacement in urban contexts and investigated the impact of right-wing populism in post-conflict and transitional societies.   

Dr Sonia Garzon has also received grants from the EU’s Erasmus Mundus Program, CEU doctoral program and from Jaume I University. Before joining Aberystwyth University, Sonia was a doctoral fellow at the department of Gender Studies at the Central European University (CEU, Budapest), where she obtained her PhD in Comparative Gender Studies. She holds MAs in Women’s and Gender Studies from Granada University, International Relations from Łodz University (Poland), and Cooperation & Development from Jaume I University (Spain). She is also graduated from the School of Gender Studies at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. 

Sonia contributes to the co-authored blog The Gender and War Project, and prior to her academic career Sonia worked in gender-focused programs in Bogotá (Colombia) where she provided accompaniment to women’s grassroots organizations in feminist economic literacy and women’s political empowerment.

Our Partners
