Research proposals address social issues in the regional context.

The Social Sciences Career Research Commission reviewed and approved two research profiles of students of the bachelor's degree in Social Sciences with mention in Development, who based on URACCAN regulations opted for monograph as a graduation modality.

This was expressed by the lilia Montoya Leal master's degree, coordinator of the Legal, Humanities and Social Sciences area of URACCAN Las Minas. Eight of the members of the Committee of Inquiry reviewed the profiles, one of them with the theme "Sociocultural construction of femininity in the families of the Empalme Labu community, Siuna 2010", presented by the Bra. Maryuri Herrera.

In addition, the bachelors Noel Aráuz Ibarra and Yader José Ruiz Jarquín presented the theme "Realities of working children, via Siuna-Rosita, 2020". Both profiles received some comments and suggestions for improvement, but met methodological and regulatory requirements, for which they were approved.

The issue raised by Bra. Maryuri Herrera develops the problem of the family as the first socialization space where the identity of "being a woman" is built, which has been reproducing traditional roles: getting married, being a mother, learning to cook, washing, cleaning, where it is normally expected that there will be repetition of the acts of an adult woman to the girl, adolescent and young.

The researcher argues that this sociocultural construction of women can be modified, showing us that "there is another world where we can have an active participation, that recognizes us as women and that transforms traditional ideologies of femininity that limit women and that violate the rights and opportunities we have in patriarchal society".

In the case of researchers Noel Aráuz Ibarra and Yader José Ruiz Jarquín, they address the problem of the accelerated increase of children in child labour, which is currently being lived on the Siuna-Rosita road, where girls and boys get on buses to sell their products.

Young people hope that their research will bring many ideas with a focus on children's rights, so that they can be taken by child welfare organizations, which will benefit children working on this path, so that they can live happily and enjoy all their rights.

URACCAN promotes among its graduates research processes that address the problems experienced by Caribbean society and whose contributions can help to change these realities in the multicultural and multilingual context of the Autonomous Regions.
