2017 In Process “Gender bias: Selection or training?” The purpose of this proposal is to study: (1) if in the Chilean context, there exists a greater gender bias in Economics, in regards to other comparable disciplines and areas of study, consistent with the result obtained by Ceci, Ginther, Kahn y Williams (2014) and (2) if this gender bias is due to student self-selection into a career or rather due to the training occurring at school.

2017 In Process “Could “Machuca” be viable, today?: Personal, intergroup and social precedents of social cohesion in the classroom in the metropolitan region of Santiago” The main goal of this project is to study, within the Chilean context, the personal, intergroup and social factors that can explain social cohesion in a micro environment, such as the classroom. Specifically, the individual dimension (empathy, emotional regulation, beliefs and family values); the intergroup dimension (social identity, prejudices, stereotypes, social dominance); and the social dimension (socioeconomic status, territorial characteristics) will be considered as eventual predictive factors of social cohesion in the classroom.

2017 In Process Transitional (In)justice and the Mapuche after the Dictatorship in Chile This research project is concerned with the challenges that indigenous experiences of state violence pose for transitional justice (TJ). We draw attention to the misrepresentation of Mapuche victims during Pinochet’s dictatorship (1973-1990) in the three official Truth and Reconciliation Commissions (TCs) that were implemented from the 1990s onwards in Chile. As we will show, while on the one hand the state focused on practices of truth telling and memory in the 1990s and 2000s, on the other hand, it perpetuated the silencing of Mapuche accounts of violence during that period. The project also traces various non official initiatives of transitional justice from a bottom up perspective, and analyze the narratives and representations of memory and justice of Mapuche victims of state violence.

2015 In Process Towards a new model of participatory territorial management: Development and evaluation of its impact The purpose of this study is to continue the analysis, transformation and consolidation of the participatory territorial management model through direct work with the stakeholders involved. Transversally, the Territorial Teams (TTs) are calling for a shared narrative that can be translated into clearer and more effective methodologies. The authors seek to study the assessment of residents and key stakeholders from various territories about the quality of their connection to the municipality, levels of cooperation and the effectiveness of socio-territorial policies.
