Rosalba Icaza Garza conducts a two-year post-doctoral research funded by a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship at the Iberoamerican Institute at Goteborg University (http://hum.gu.se/).
Rosalba's current research is focused on Regional and Global Trade Politics, Democracy and Gender. In particular, she explores the democratic and gender impacts of free trade agreements between Northern and Southern counterparts and of local civic activism's engagement in this debate.
Rosalba has extensive research experience on international networks with a particular interest on civil society and Latin American and Mexican regionalism. She obtained her PhD in 2004 from Warwick University with the dissertation: 'Civil Society and Regionalisation. Exploring the contours of Mexican Transborder Activism'. This research focused on the intersections between globalization and regionalism and the role that international networks play in the making of regional transactions.
Rosalba also holds a MA from Warwick University and a BA with honors from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City.
