My research examines the current changing form of political violence in the context and aftermath of intrastate conflicts. I am interested in the increasing internationalization of violent intrastate conflicts and the consequences for political violence. Furthermore, I examine the global trend of ‘shrinking civic spaces’ and the targeted, repressive violence against social activists and civic actors. Empirically, I focus my research on the specific dynamics in Latin America and especially Colombia.
