Raquel holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of A Coruña (08/02/2008). Her doctoral thesis, entitled 'Welfare and Care: the Caring Profession. Immigrant Women and the Elderly Native Population', was directed by Professor Antonio Izquierdo Escribano and was unanimously awarded the highest grade, Cum Laude.

Raquel Martínez Buján holds a PhD degree and is a Contracted Lecturer in the Faculty of Sociology of the University of A Coruña, where she teaches ‘Sociology of Family’ and ‘Globalization, Environment and Population’, which are subjects in the Sociology Degree. Her main research areas are the analysis of International Migration Dynamics, Social Policies and Employment and Sociology of Care and Family.

In particular, her most representative research works have focused on exploring the relationships between female migration flows and the need for care within families. This study field has also been extended around the influence of social policies and the public programme philosophy on the creation of an irregular, ethnicized care labour market. Great part of her research is also focused on studying Latin American migration and their insertion in the European labour market.

 

Her academic education includes a specialization in these fields via research stays in the following renowned institutions: 

- CIRCLE (Centre for International Research on Care, Labour and Equalities, University of Leeds, Reino Unido)

- CESU (Centro de Estudios Superiores Universitarios, Cochabamba, Bolivia),

- Oxford Institute of Ageing (Reino Unido),

- Centro Latinoamericano y Caribeño de Estudios Demográficos (CELADE, Santiago de Chile),

- Centre D'Estudis Demográfics (Barcelona)

- Institut Nacional d'Etudes Demographiques (INED) de Paris.
