Renewal of the Scientific Committee

The Scientific Committee of the Carlos III-Juan March Institute of Social Sciences brings together academics of major international prestige who assess and supervise the Institute's activities and appointments. Given the end of its current five-year mandate, the Committee has been renewed. Delia Baldassarri (New York University), Isabela Mares (Yale University) and Robert Fishman (Carlos III University) have entered the new Scientific Committee.


Delia Baldassarri is Associate Professor of Sociology at New York University. She has received numerous awards for her research, including the Raymond Boudon Award given to young researchers by the European Academy of Sociology, and the Hans L. Zetterberg Prize in Sociology. She is the author of many articles in journals including the American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology and the American Journal of Political Science. Her research focuses on the issue of cooperation in complex societies.

Robert Fishman is Professor of Political Science and Sociology at the Carlos III University, Madrid. His field of research is comparative political sociology. He is the author of numerous academic works published in journals including the American Sociological Review, Comparative Politics and the Annual Review of Political Science. He is the author of three books: Working Class Organization and the Return of Democracy in Spain (1990), Democracy’s Voices: Social Ties and the Quality of Public Life in Spain (2004) (both by Cornell University Press) and Democratic Practice: Origins of the Iberian Divide in Political Inclusion (Oxford University Press, 2019).

Isabela Mares is Professor of Political Science at Yale University. Her work lies in the fields of comparative politics and political economy, focusing on issues relating to the fiscal capacity of the state, social policy, democratization, and clientelism. She is the author of three books: (all published by Cambridge University Press): The Politics of Social Risk: Business and Welfare State Development (2003); Taxation, Wage Bargaining and Unemployment (2006); y From Open Secrets to Secret Voting: The adoption of electoral reforms protecting voter autonomy (2015).

For their part, the following members leave the Committee, after a long and extremely fruitful period of service to the Institute: Gøsta Esping-Andersen (Pompeu Fabra University), José María Maravall (Complutense University, Madrid) and Adam Przeworski (New York University). José María Maravall was, in addition, Director of the Institute (under its previous guise of the Center for Advanced Study in the Social Sciences), from 1996 to 2007. The Institute expresses its profound gratitude to all three.
