Marcos Perez is a graduate student in the Department of Sociology. His main areas of interest are social inequality and social movements. In particular, Marcos is interested in the way social movements in general (and poor people's movements in particular) may promote the implementation of progressive and redistributive policies, therefore acting as a force towards a better distribution of wealth.
Marcos is currently involved in two research projects. On the one hand, a study of the relationship between pro-market economic policies and income inequality for different groups of countries. On the other, an analysis of the trends in collective action in Argentina after the economic crisis of 2001-2002.
