Santiago Correa Serran

Assistant Researcher

Santiago is an economist from Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) who holds a Master’s in Politics and Communications from the London School of Economics (LSE). He obtained the latter with a thesis that explored the role of the press during the Chilean transition to democracy, the emergence of opposition newspapers that challenged the dictatorship and their subsequent disappearance, as well as the consolidation of the conservative right-winged media. His research interests concentrate on the role played by the media in democracies, the apparent trade-off between pluralism and independence in the media system, and the state’s guarantee of access to information.
