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 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. She has also been a recipient of the Erasmus grant, which allowed her to study at Sciences Po Aix for a year.
