Professor Duquette-Rury’s research examines the consequences of international migration on democracy, development, and state-society relations. In a book length project, she studies the conditions under which organized migrant groups mobilize remittances to participate in the provision of social welfare and how this transnational participation affects the quality of local democracy in their places of origin. In related research, she examines how international migration influences political engagement, meanings and practices of citizenship, in both origin and destination countries. Her research is funded by the Hellman Fellows Program and the Center for the Study of International Migration at UCLA, the Ford Foundation and the National Academies, the National Science Foundation, and the Tinker Foundation. Duquette-Rury received her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and most recently was a University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellow.
