BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Stephen Cornell is director of the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy and professor of sociology and of public administration and policy at The University of Arizona where he also serves as a faculty associate with the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy.

He also is codirector of the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development, a research program headquartered at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University that he co-founded in the late 1980s with Professor Joseph P. Kalt.

A specialist in political economy and cultural sociology, Cornell holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Chicago and taught at Harvard University for nine years before moving to the University of California, San Diego, in 1989 and then to The University of Arizona in 1998. He has written widely on Indigenous affairs, economic development, collective identity, and ethnic and race relations. Among his publications are The Return of the Native: American Indian Political Resurgence, What Can Tribes Do? Strategies and Institutions in American Indian Economic Development (co-edited with Joseph P. Kalt), and Ethnicity and Race: Making Identities in a Changing World (co-authored with Douglas Hartmann).

Cornell has spent much of the last 20 years working with Indigenous nations and organizations—mostly in the United States but also in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand—on governance, economic development, and tribal policy issues.
