Dr Lazar researches collective and radical politics in Latin America. 

Most recently her work has focussed on labour movement activism in Argentina. See The Social Life of Politics: Ethics, Kinship and Union Activism in Argentina.

She is also interested in social movements and citizenship action more broadly, especially in moments of social upheaval. Her previous work was in El Alto, one of the most important centres of political radicalism in Bolivia in the early 2000s. See  El Alto, Rebel City: Self and Citizenship in Andean Bolivia
