Hour of consultation: appointment via e-mail


Luíza Cerioli is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the collaborative research project etractivism.de at University of Kassel. She focuses on International Relations of the Middle East and foreign policy of the Global South. She now expands her research towards the possibilities of transnational cross-comparison of key concepts and categories of rentier societies in Latin America and the Middle East, concentrating in particular on the cases of Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, and Algeria. She recently submitted her dissertation in Political Science at the Centre for Near and Middle East Studies (CNMS) at the University of Marburg. Her Ph.D. thesis develops a nuanced framework of international relations to cope with the complexity of studying multifaced relations between states. She holds an International Relations and Comparative Foreign Policy Master from the University of Brasília (UnB), and her alma mater is the University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). She is also an academic member of BRaS (Brazilian Research and Study Center) and a PhD fellow at SEPAD (Sectarianism, Proxies and De-sectarianisation).
