José Alvarado is an Intern in the SIPRI Peace and Development Programme, conducting research on women’s participation in peace processes, particularly focusing on the implementation of UNSCR 1325 in the most recent peace agreements in Colombia and the Philippines.
Prior to joining SIPRI, José completed his Master’s thesis focusing on the fragmentation of the women’s movement during peace processes given that previous research had not fully addressed the causal processes embedded in participation of women’s groups in peace processes, and the potential outcomes achieved by their participation. He has also worked for a variety of organizations doing research and other programmatic work on human trafficking and gang violence in the USA; mining conflicts in Guatemala, and M&E of education and health projects at UNRWA in Jordan.
