Rafael Silva Álvarez is a development worker and researcher based in Nicaragua. He has extensive experience coordinating education projects in Central America and East Africa, where his main focus has been to empower youth and help them become the driving force to achieve positive change in their communities.

A consolidated facilitator, he believes that training should be based on fluent exchange of ideas and practices between trainer and trainee, a horizontal relation rather than pyramidal. Rafael has expertise as well on peacebuilding, conflict mediation, and preventing violent extremism, and he has worked for institutions such as the Romanian Peace Institute and the Galician delegation before the EU in Brussels.

Rafael holds a MSc in Conflict Resolution and Governance from the University of Amsterdam and a BA in Journalism Studies from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain).
