Project coordinator

Thamy Pogrebinschi is a senior researcher at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, faculty member of the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences (BGSS) at Humboldt University, and adjunct professor of political science at the Institute of Social and Political Studies of the State University of Rio de Janeiro (IESP-UERJ). After publishing several books on political theory in Brazil (two of them award-winning), she turned to empirical research on democracy and participation in Latin America. Her sixth book, Judicialization or Representation? Politics, Law, and Democracy in Brazil (2012), vindicates political and institutional experimentalism as a response to democratic deficits, and as a way out of the crisis of representation – a claim that permeates several of her articles and book chapters. LATINNO has been conceived as part of her larger research program on the notion of “pragmatic democracy” (see Pogrebinschi 2010 and 2013).
