Research Interests

My main research interest is the demand for a global citizenship identified in the work of professors Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt: Empire (2005) and Multitude (2005). By describing the social player called multitude, the authors point out its characteristics and some of its demands, as the minimum income guarantee and the global citizenship, that are nowadays represented by the migration flows on the Mediterranean Sea and Central and North America, among others. By analysing the theoretical landmark of the concept of citizenship and the current norms related to it, I have been conducting research that aims to point out perspectives and challenges on the subject, specially concerning contemporary geopolitics and public international law.
