Daniela Osorio Michel

  • Kurzer Lebenslauf

    I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the research project Democratic Institutions in the Global South (DEMINGS). I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Vanderbilt University. Prior to Vanderbilt, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the Universidad Mayor de San Simón. 

    My research focuses on questions of identity, public opinion, representation, and democracy. Using quantitative, qualitative, and experimental methodologies, I study the barriers women politicians face to achieving office. By applying a comparative perspective, I question the generalizability of conventional theories regarding women and politics.

    Democratic Institutions in the Global South (DEMINGS)

    This project contributes new knowledge on the functioning of democratic institutions in the Global South, their (in)efficacy to constrain powerful executives, and the effects of particular institutions on both democratic quality and regime stability. The focus is on countries with presidential constitutions, i.e., those with directly elected presidents, an institutional choice that extended worldwide in the last decades.
