Daniel Lopez

PhD Student


Daniel started reading for PhD in International Relations at the Brussels School of International Studies in September 2017. His research focuses on the transnational conditions of possibility of the Colombian conflict. More specifically, he explores how a hegemonic international common sense on the agrarian mode of production – necessary for the reproduction of a particular world order – has been a vehicle for the origin and persistence of the conflict in Colombia.

He obtained his BA in Political Science at the Andes University in Bogota, Colombia and his MA in International Political Economy at the Brussels School of International Studies. He has also studied the use of qualitative methods in writing conflict scenarios at the National University of Colombia.

Daniel has done extensive field work in Colombia to collect information for the development and management of regional plans. He has also worked for the Organization of Ibero-American States to assist in the creation of Plans for Development with Territorial Approach (PDET) to implement the agreements of the Colombian peace process.
