Santiago AnriaAssistant Professor
Santiago Anria is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Labor and Work at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations. He studies the relationships between social movements, labor unions, and political parties in Latin America, and his research has appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Politics & Society, Comparative Political Studies, Comparative Politics, Studies in Comparative International Development, and Latin American Politics and Society, among others. His first book, When Movements Become Parties: The Bolivian MAS in Comparative Perspective (Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics, 2018), studies the internal politics of parties formed by union movements. His current book project, Polarization and Democracy: Latin America After the Left Turn, provides a new perspective on the causes and consequences of political polarization in Latin America. Santiago’s other on-going research project focuses on how social movements shape the entrenchment of policies aimed at reducing social inequalities. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015, and has held fellowships at Harvard University (2021-22) and Tulane University (2015-17).
