Edurne JIMÉNEZ PÉREZ 

 

I am a sociologist by the Autonomous University of Barcelona and master in territorial and population studies by the Center for Demographic Studies of the same university. In the last ten years I have worked in two areas. On the one hand, as a feminist researcher in European projects on gender-related violences and sexual violence (Gap WorkUSVreact). I’ve also been part of the Seminari of Feminist Research Methodology and the Gredi research group at the Rovira i Virgili University. On the other hand, as a member of the Candela Cooperative where I coordinate projects in coeducation, gender-related violences prevention and sexual and gender diversity from a feminist and community perspective. I am also a trainer of varied audiences in these subjects, an LGTBI + youth educator in the Oasis project and I have been a teacher of the Social Education degree in the subject of "Community, social environement and community action".

My PhD focuses on the interaction of these two fields. I evaluate two projects of gender-related violences prevention, specifically two training programmes for professionals, incorporating the principles of feminist research. The idea is to generate tools to improve the evaluative processes that end up reversing in an improvement of the formative programs that seek the eradication of all these violence.
