Alonso Ramírez Cover is a professor of Development Theories, Political Philosophy and Epistemology of Political Science at the University of Costa Rica. Before coming to ISS, he also worked as a researcher for the Institute of Social Research there as well, and coordinated this institute's Research Program on New Forms of Capital Accumulation, Distribution and Inequality in Central America.

He is currently researching on changes in governance of development-conservation intervention mechanisms and their relation to green neoliberalism and capitalism, the political economy of tourism and institutional change in environmental governance. For his PhD he has been working on the role of these elements within a transfrontier conservation area located between Costa Rica and Panama; yet his overall research interests are widely focused on Central America as a whole. He has also worked as a think tank consultant on other pressing issues for this region such as external trade policy, institutional change and democratic transition.

Alonso Ramírez received his BA on Political Science at the University of Costa Rica and his MA in Development Studies with emphasis in Development Research at ISS in late 2011. He has continued onward with his PhD studies at the latter.
