Visiting position at the Latin American Centre, Oxford (time-sensitive)

The Latin American Centre at Oxford is now recruiting for a 4-year “departmental lectureship” (equivalent to "visiting assistant professor" in the US), and I am hoping that you might be able to suggest some names for us to contact — and/or circulate the attached job description among your recent PhD students or junior colleagues.   The ideal profile would be someone in political economy with a specialization on Brazil.

Activism in Zones of Violence and Institutional Fragility: The Case of Michoacán, Mexico

Drawing on fresh research from a large ESRC-funded team project in Mexico, I will address the challenges faced by activists or rights defenders within contexts where they are not only fearful of violence but also frustrated by the inadequacy of institutional channels. In such difficult contexts, where state institutions may well be part of the problem, it would seem that activist groups have a vital role to play.
The Political Futility of Counterinsurgency

The Political Futility of Counterinsurgency

What are the long-term political consequences of counterinsurgent violence? An emerging literature analyzes the socio-political consequences of civil war. Yet, while the bulk of this research focuses on individual-level effects, we still have little knowledge about how these results aggregate up to collective outcomes. This study analyzes the electoral consequences of the genocidal counterinsurgency in Guatemala’s three-decades long civil war (1966-96).
Return Migration and Democratic Consolidation
Activité de centre | 2017-11-16 (Royaume-Uni - UCL Institute of the Americas, 51 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PN)

Return Migration and Democratic Consolidation

This paper explores the role of return migrants in democratic consolidation. According to recent research, emigrants and the money they remit can facilitate transitions to democracy. Out-migration and remittances allow recipients to escape clientelistic ties by increasing recipients’ autonomy from state-provided social and public goods. As a result, recipients vote their conscience or do not vote, thereby debilitating the electoral support of traditionally clientelistic parties.
