Juan Carlos Triviño Salazar

Juan Carlos Triviño Salazar

Postdoctoral Researcher Juan de la Cierva-Formación


I am currently a Juan de la Cierva post-doctoral fellow at IBEI, and in parallel to this position, I also work for the Horizon 2020 Transcrisis project at IBEI. My research engages in questions about public policy, political participation and inclusion, local politics and immigration and integration. I also collaborate with the research group GRITIM at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona). I have taught undergrad and master courses on public policy, international relations, comparative politics and immigration at UPF and IBEI. In January 2016, I defended my PhD thesis titled “Political parties and immigrant associations: alliances in the presence of politicized immigration conflicts. A comparative study”. From 2012 to 2015, I was a Catalan Government FI-AGAUR pre-doctoral fellow.  I have done academic stays at the CUNY Graduate Center  in New York and McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada and another one at the FEGS in Caracas, Venezuela. I hold a Mundus-Mapp double degree master in public policy (IISS-The Hague and IBEI-Barcelona) funded by the Erasmus Mundus program and an MSc in European relations (Linköping University-Sweden).
