He is member of the British Sociological Association (BSA) and the International Sociological Association (ISA). Camilo is affiliated to the BSA ‘Sociology of Rights’ Study Group and a Board Member of the Research Committee on Social Movements, Collective Action and Social Change (RC48) of the International Sociological Association. He holds a PhD in Politics and International Studies from the Centre for Research in the Social Sciences (CRISS), the University of Huddersfield (UK). The work that he has been developing in recent years focuses on the relationship between citizenship, social movements, human rights and communicative citizenship from a socio-political perspective. His recent research explores how social movements of victims have been using different communicative citizenship actions to claim human rights in local and regional public spheres; and how these actions have been affecting constructions of political and cultural memory, dimensions of social recognition, and degrees of solidarity and power.
