Professor Cornell is also Director of the Udall Centre 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 has written widely on Indigenous affairs, economic development, collective identity and ethnic and race relations.
Professor Cornell has spent much of the last 20 years working with Indigenous nations and organisations - mostly in the United States but also in Canada, Australia and New Zealand - on governance, economic development and tribal policy issues.
