Andres Uribe

  • Einstein-Moos Postdoctoral Fellow, 2023-24


Andres Uribe is a scholar of democracy, governance, and political violence. He received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 2023. His book project, "Coercion and Capture in Democratic Politics," examines how armed non-state groups seek to influence the democratic process. Through quantitative, computational, and archival analysis of rebel, paramilitary, and criminal groups in Latin America, he identifies the conditions that lead these actors to intervene in electoral politics, the structural forces that determine whether they succeed or fail, and the consequences of these interventions for democratic institutions and policy outcomes. Other projects explore processes of modern state-building, governance by non-state actors, and the political strategies of anti-democratic politicians. His research has been published in the Journal of Peace Research, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Presidential Studies Quarterly.
