Mariana Parra

I'm PhD candidate in Political Studies at the University of Milan. MA in International Studies, University of the Basque Country, Spain, and BA in International Relations, Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo, Brazil.
I'm a human rights lover and activist, I believe and support emancipatory and transcultural approaches for them, and I also believe human rights and Ecology are interdependent. I'm a feminist with this same perspective. I'm curious and I love to know about different cultures, and also about what we all have in common. So I write and translate to Global Voices for what I believe and for what I'm passionate about.
