The governance of organised crime in Chile
Carlos’ thesis explores how Chile’s public security institutions have engaged in network governance to confront organised crime since re-democratisation. To enlighten this puzzle, his dissertation draws upon historical institutionalism and policy network theoretical approaches.
Carlos is finishing his writing-up and starting a further research agenda exporting the Anglo-Saxon governance debate to case studies in the developing world in order to examine how socio-political actors shape democratic policy through horizontal and interactive governing.
Carlos was awarded his PhD in 2017.
