Juan Albarracín Dierolf
I am a PhD student in the Department of Political Science and a PhD Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame, as well as the recipient of a J. William Fulbright Scholarship. After earning an MA in comparative politics at the University of Tübingen (Germany), I was a lecturer and researcher at Icesi University in Cali, Colombia, where I also served as director of undergraduate studies for the political science program. My research interests include political violence and conflict, political order and citizenship in brown areas/areas of limited statehood, as well as political parties and electoral competition in Colombia. I have published on Brazilian political parties, Brazilian foreign policy, and Latin American regional integration.
My research interests include:

Colombian Foreign Service: Currently executing a project on the quality of the Colombian Foreign Service with C. Moreno, Binghamton University/ Icesi University.
Political parties, party systems and electoral systems: Currently executing a research project on the effects of electoral reform in Colombian sub-national elections with J. Milanese, Icesi University. I also wrote my MA thesis on political parties in Brazil.
Regional integration in Latin America: Currently working with Juliana Erthal on a project studying regional integration parliaments in Latin America.
