Consuelo Thiers

IBEI Fellow


Consuelo Thiers is a Fellow in International Security at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals – IBEI. Previously, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Ghent University, Belgium. She holds a PhD from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK) and a Master’s degree in International Studies from Universidad de Chile.

Her research interests include enduring interstate rivalries, political psychology, foreign policy analysis, and the psychological assessment of political leaders. She also has a particular interest in the foreign policies of the Southern Cone countries of Latin America.

Her research focuses on the application of psychologically oriented and agent-based approaches to understanding decision making in International Relations.
