Sidney G. Tarrow

Cornell University

Sidney G. Tarrow, Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Government and professor of sociology at Cornell University, will write a book that examines transnational activism. He will consider a variety of questions, such as whether transnational activists consider themselves a distinct group, whether they move in and out of their activist role as issues ebb and flow, how they gain certification to be able to operate internationally, and how they appropriate domestic organizations for international purposes. Tarrow's book will outline implications for American policy toward domestically based transnational groups and international institutions.
