Maria Martin de Almagro is assistant professor in the political science department at Université de Montréal. She studies gender politics, international political economy and the micro-dynamics of war to peace transitions from a poststructuralist and postcolonial perspective. Her research agenda revolves around 3 topics: 1) a multi-modal discourse approach to analyze the life cycle of international norms and their implementation in development and post-conflict environments; 2) the link between UN security and development policies; 3) transnational social movements and the production of knowledge on gender and race underpinning security and development policies. She has been Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Cambridge and has a Ph.D. in Political and Social Sciences from the Université libre de Bruxelles and a Ph.D. in Political Theory from LUISS Guido Carli.
