Time in Oñati:
It is always a pleasure to come back to Oñati and the IISL. I was a guest researcher this time, thanks to a residence grant generously provided by the IISL Patronage. I stayed at the Antixena, a beautiful 18th Century building, and I conducted my PhD research at the incredible library, one of the world’s best regarding socio-legal studies, which greatly assisted me in my research. It contains hundreds of books about diaspora creation, human rights, women and migration, and refugee issues.
As usual, it is not just the Institute and library that contribute to a memorable stay. It is the opportunity to meet people from all over the world (from master students to other visiting scholars), mingle with the Oñatiarras, and spend time hiking through Oñati’s beautiful mountains and landscapes.
Thanks to all of the IISL staff for being so accommodating and warm as always, I leave feeling inspired and grateful.
I hope to come back very soon!
Eskerrik asko eta laster arte!
