Project Title: 
The end of Chilean Political status quo: an overview of the radical shifts in key policy issues in the last decade.
Project Abstract: 
The project is designed to develop field research in Chile's Congress (also in Santiago), by interviewing former and current political actors that participated in the design, discussion, and approval of the key policies that have unbalanced the institutional status quo that characterized Chilean politics during the last decades. This project will also gather and analyze qualitative and quantitative evidence from Congressional records, public hearings, and meetings between actors, to determine the cause of the reforms that are changing Chilean institutions. This research will be the key input for my Master's Thesis Investigation roughly described in the project proposal.
