REBECCA V. BELL-MARTIN
VIOLENCE, SECURITY AND CONTENTIOUS POLITICS
I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Government at el Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, México.
I completed my PhD in Political Science at Brown University.
I am a Latin Americanist whose work bridges the divide between Comparative Politics and International Relations. I study conflict processes, the politics of crime and public security, and contentious political behavior in violent democracies. I use qualitative, quantitative and experimental methodological approaches and have extensive experience conducting field research in Latin America.
