Agnes Cornell

Ph.D. | Assistant Professor

Political Science

 

Research Areas

  • State-building and public administration
  • Democracy and democratization
  • Latin American politics

Agnes Cornell’s main research interest lies in the intersection between state bureaucracy and the functioning of democracy; political institutions and citizens’ interactions with the state. She studies this relationship, both in a historical perspective, going back to the 19th Century and onwards, and in a contemporary context, focusing on Latin America.
