Aleksandra Semeriak was born in Riga in the final years of the Latvian SSR, but she grew up in Germany and Spain. She holds a B.A. in Political and Administration Sciences and a M.Sc. in Immigration Management from the University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain).
Currently working at the Spanish Commission for Refugees, Aleksandra has a wide volunteering experience with communities at risk of social exclusion, especially migrants and children. As an individual member of the European Network on Statelessness, one of her main objectives is to raise awareness about statelessness and contribute to its prevention and eradication.
A firm believer in positive social changes and equal opportunities, her other areas of interest and research, apart from migration, asylum and statelessness, include integration, education, children's rights and gender equality.
Fluent in English, Spanish, German, Russian, French and Catalan, she hopes to be able to speak about statelessness also in Arabic, Farsi or Turkish in the future.
