Stephen Cornell

Stephen Cornell specializes in political economy and cultural sociology and has written widely on ethnic and race relations, collective identity, and policy issues related to Indigenous peoples. He has worked closely with Native nations and organizations in the so-called CANZUS countries (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States) on self-government and economic development challenges. Among his current research projects are a comparative study of patterns of Indigenous self-government in these four countries and a study of the social determinants of health outcomes among American Indian nations.
