Laura is the Outreach and Governance Officer at Club de Madrid. She is responsible for coordinating the work of the organisation in matters related to internal governance, membership, and compliance with statutory obligations. She also supports outreach operations, advocacy actions and the establishment of relations and partnerships with like-minded institutions.

Before joining Club de Madrid, Laura’s career had predominantly been research-oriented. While working at UNICEF (Spain), most of her research focused on different aspects of Agenda 2030 and cooperation and development strategies.  At BEMIS she led a project evaluating the government’s initiatives to promote the active citizenship of ethnic communities in the region. In addition to these experiences, she has conducted research studies for the University of Exeter on EU public policy, as well as for Cornwall Council on approaches to successful communication at the local level.

Laura holds a BA in Politics and International Relations from the University of Exeter and an MSc in Sociology and Global Change from the University of Edinburgh.
