Guillermo Cordero

Guillermo Cordero is assistant professor of political science and international relations at the Autonomous University of Madrid. Previously, he held postdoctoral teaching and research positions at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and pre-doctoral research positions at the Center for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences.

At the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES), Cordero will examine the consequences of economic insecurity and inequality on youth political behavior, specifically on the support for populist parties. His research will examine to what extent young voters have embraced radical populist parties, both on the right and on the left of the political spectrum, as a result of the Great Recession in Europe from 2008-2009.

This information is accurate for the time period that the visiting scholar is affiliated with CES.
