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. He received his Ph.D. in political science in 2012.
At the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES), he will examine the consequences of economic insecurity and inequality on youth political behavior, specifically on the support for populist parties. His research aims to analyze 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 (2008-2009) in Europe.
