Pamela Suero




Pamela is a social policy specialist and researcher, from the Dominican Republic. She earned her master’s degree in international economics from Carleton University (Canada) in 2009, a graduate certificate in human development from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in 2006, and a bachelor’s degree in economics as well as a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Worcester State University (Massachusetts, U.S) in 2004.


Her work in the U.S., Canada, and mostly her home country and Latin America has been motivated by a strong commitment to social justice and to the promotion of social transformations through rights-based policy development. For more than 16 years in multidisciplinary practice, and some in policy-oriented research, she has supported governments, communities and international agencies in innovation and development of social and economic inclusion policies, programmes and projects. Her work has added a critical perspective in diverse international teams, including collaborations with the UNDP, the World Bank, the Interamerican Development Bank, the French Agency of International Development, the United States Agency for International Development, and the Collaborative African Budget Reform Initiative. She has also taught at universities and schools in the U.S. and the Dominican Republic.


In 2023 she was selected as one of 12 international researchers in the Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Doctoral Network (DN) on Advancing Research and Training on Ageing, Place and Home – HOMeAGE program. Her motivation as a Ph.D. researcher is to expand the impact of her work and contribute to the production of key knowledge required to help inform, inspire and shape critical policy decisions necessary for advancing social and spatial justice in our ageing world.
