Alexis A. Álvarez, M.A.

My current research focuses on mapping the integration, centralization, and hierarchy of macro-level networks across, and identifying the causal relationships of these network dimensions to one another, and to attributes of the world-system, such as global economic inequality, hegemonic emphasis on hard vs. soft power, and the prominence of international government organizations (IGOs) such as the United Nations.
