Andrea C. Bianculli
Andrea C. Bianculli is Assistant Professor at the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) since November 2017. 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.
Andrea 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.
She is 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).
