Lila Caballero is head of projects at Counterpoint and the project manager and senior researcher on the Recapturing Europe’s Reluctant Radicals project.
As head of projects she monitors the finances and delivery of all Counterpoint’s projects, drawing from over five years of experience on research projects in Mexico and the UK, and a brief career in the Mexican financial sector.
Lila holds a PhD in Government and an Msc in Comparative Politics from the London School of Economics. During her postgraduate studies she focused on the underlying power dynamics of institutions, which are deeply rooted in culture and traditions. At Counterpoint she has been able to continue exploring the ‘hidden wiring’ and cultural complexities of European institutions, mainly through her work on populism. Lila has authored, co-authored and commissioned various pieces on the hidden wiring of populism within the Reluctant Radicals project, and often writes short pieces on current events for the Counterpoint website.
She is bilingual in Spanish and English and fluent in French.
