Carolina B Pavese

Former Associate student

Carolina’s thesis explores different strategies of international cooperation, asking whether or not the engagement between two actors in a multilateral context is influenced by shifts in the pattern of their cooperation at the bilateral level.

Addressing this issue, she investigates European Union-Brazil relations in three issue- areas: Climate change (UNFCCC), Trade (WTO), and Human rights (UNHRC).

Since March 2011, Carolina has also been working at the Grantham Research Institute as a Research Assistant, and as a Graduate Teaching Assistant to the International Organizations Course, offered by the Department of International Relations, LSE.
