Maria Coo: Unauthorized Migration and Border "Control": Three Regional Views

International Studies in Planning Spring 2008 Lecture Series

Maria Cook is an associate professor in the Department of Collective Bargaining, Labor Law, and Labor History and the Department of International and Comparative Labor in the School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University. She has written about Mexican trade unions and politics; labor law reform in Latin America; trade and labor rights; and regional integration and transnational social movements in North America. Cook's latest research looks at global migration movements and the role of migrant rights advocacy groups in shaping public debates over unauthorized migration. Her research draws on cases located in three regions: the U.S.-Mexico border, southern Spain, and Australia.
