Andrea C. Bianculli
I am an Assistant Professor at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI).
My research lies at the interface between sociology, politics and international relations. Substantively, I am concerned with three different but strongly interwoven research areas: trade, regulation and development, with a regional focus on Latin America.
I have a PhD in Political and Social Sciences from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I held a Juan de la Cierva-Incorporación Fellowship at IBEI and a Post-doctoral Fellowship at the Research College ‘The Transformative Power of Europe’, Freie Universität Berlin. I was also a researcher at the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO-Argentina).
My book ‘Negotiating Trade Liberalization in Argentina and Chile. When Policy creates Politics’ (Routledge 2017) builds on my PhD dissertation, which was awarded a Special Mention of the Juan Linz Prize 2010-2011 for the Best Doctoral Dissertation in Political Science granted by the Centro de Estudios Políticos y Constitucionales.
I am currently leading a research project on 'Regional Social Regulation in Latin America: A New Agenda for Development? Prospects and Challenges' (SociAL-Reg), funded by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness (CSO2015-66411-P).
