Pascual is a PhD candidate in Law at LSE. He holds an LLB from University of Chile and an LLM from the LSE.

His research aims to explore how police institutions build their institutional identity and to what extent this process is connected to the construction and imagination of the nation-state. Using Chile as a case study, the project also seeks to contribute to answering questions about the nature and role of the police as well as their relationship to the law and the constitution.
