Dr. Andrea C. Bianculli is Assistant Professor at the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) since November 2017 and Academic Co-Coordinator of the Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy at the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI). Her research crosses sociology, politics, and international relations, and is substantively concerned with three different but strongly interwoven areas: trade, regulation, and development, with a regional focus on Latin America.
Previously, she 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. She was also a researcher at the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales/FLACSO-Argentina.
She has a PhD in Political and Social Sciences (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and holds a master’s degree in International Relations (Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales/FLACSO-Argentina).
Her book ‘Negotiating Trade Liberalization in Argentina and Chile. When Policy creates Politics’ (Routledge 2017) builds on her PhD dissertation, which received 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.
