Andrea Beltrán-Lizarazo entered the program in 2018. Her current work investigates the logics of justice and punishment within the War on Drugs. Particularly, it analyzes the political meanings and socio-economic effects of civil forfeiture laws.
Andrea is likewise interested in the War on Terror and the reasonings and consequences of its legal transformations. Through her work, she seeks to extend the fields of the sociology of the state and the sociology of law.
She is a Fulbright grantee and holds an MA in Sociology from Paris VIII, in France, and a BA in Government and International Relations from the Universidad Externado, in Colombia.
