PhD Candidate in Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge

Felipe Krause received a BA in Politics and International Studies from Warwick University, an MPhil in International Development from Oxford, and is now pursuing a PhD in Politics and International Studies at Cambridge.

His research interests lie at the intersection of sociology and international studies, or how local political movements affect and are affected by larger global forces. Specifically, he is interested in Latin American social movements attempting to change global policies surrounding illicit drugs. Another area of interest is the role of emerging economies in international development aid.

Felipe is a career diplomat in the Brazilian Foreign Service since 2007. Opinions expressed here are the author's own and do not necessarily reflect the official position of the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
