Lecturer in International Relations, Department of Politics

Research information

Alejandro M. Peña is Lecturer in International Politics at the University of York. His research focuses on two intersections: that between global and domestic politics, particularly around questions of transnational governance, and that between routine and contentious politics, with a particular focus on state-society interactions in Latin America. Moving between theoretical and applied questions, current research explores changing political party behaviours in relation to protest, the positioning of social movements in IR theory, and sociological aspects of international relations theory.

In collaboration with local partners, he is in the early phases of a fieldwork project concerned with the ‘Lithium Boom’ in north west Argentina, evaluating conflicting governance visions, asymmetric political relations, and socio-environmental impact.

He is the author of Transnational Governance and South American Politics: The Political Economy of Norms (Palgrave, 2016) and has published in a wide range of journals including: New Political Economy, European Journal of International Relations, Mobilization, Regulation and Governance, Oxford Development Studies, etc.).
