Elisa Floristán Millán was graduated in Social and Cultural Anthropology by Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. During her degree, she was focused on Mental Heath activism, doing field work in ‘Flipas Gam Collective’ in Madrid. Together with her interest in Mental Health research, triggered by a post graduate course titled “Salud mental en contextos de violencia política y catástrofes naturales”, she became part of a research group looking into the impact of the torture of the Israeli government on Palestinian political prisoners in suport of the TRC in Ramallah. With the ambition of understanding, she took a Master titled “Teoría y Crítica de la Cultura”, finding herself in the field of studying Human Rights, Peace making Processes, and Public Orientation. This was finished with the investigation “¿Qué puedo hacer yo? Derechos humanos, reparación y compromiso político”. After the Master, she enrolled the research group titled “Fronteras, democracia y justicia global. Argumentos filosóficos en torno a la emergencia de un espacio cosmopolita”. This experience lead on my thesis focused on analysing infant migration in the south border of Europe, Madrid and the north border between Spain and France.
Regarding GDC: it finds a place to think about power structures and its resistances between people from different countries all over the world.
