Dara Strolovitch (Department of Political Science, College of Liberal Arts)

Professor Strolovitch focused her research on the issue of the globalism of social justice advocacy in the United States by examining the ways in which and the extent to which American civil and human rights, racial and ethnic minority, economic justice, HIV/AIDS, and women’s organizations and social movements are connected to international organizations and movements in other countries, as well as to transnational organizations.
