Annabelle Dias Felix

Annabelle Dias Felix is a Ph.D student in Political Science at Université de Montréal and her research focuses on public security programs in Latin America. She is particularly interested in community-oriented policing programs in democracies. In her doctoral thesis proposes an intra and international comparison of two so-called ‘democratic’ community-oriented policing programs in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Mexico City and Nezahualcóyot (Mexico). In 2014, she obtained her Master’s degree in Latin American studies (Political Science – Research) at the Institut des Hautes Études sur l’Amérique latine (IHEAL - Paris III Sorbonne Nouvelle) and wrote a dissertation entitled ‘The Politics of public security and peacekeeping units in Rio de Janeiro: social practices and representations among the Mangueria military police’, under the supervision of Professor Camille Goirand.

Since 2015, Annabelle has been an active member of several research centers and groups including: réseau d’études latino-américaines à Montréal (RÉLAM), centre de recherche sur les politiques et le développement social (CPDS), centre d’études et de recherches internationales de l’UdeM (CÉRIUM) et enfin, de l’équipe de recherche sur l’inclusion et la gouvernance en Amérique latine (ÉRIGAL).
