Juan Masullo

Juan Masullo is Assistant Professor at the Institute of Political Science at Leiden University and a member of the Amsterdam Conflict Research Network. His research employs a variety of methods to study political and criminal violence, especially in Latin America.  He is particularly interested in how individuals and communities living in violent settings make choices and how their experiences shape their political preferences, including preferences toward different policy strategies to deal with violence and crime. He has been exploring these issues in different countries affected by civil war and organized crime, including Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Brazil.
