Dr. Delano received her doctorate from the University of Oxford in International Relations and specializes in the study of migration from a political perspective, specifically the role of the sending state in managing migration, the limits of cooperation at the bilateral, regional and multilateral levels, immigrant integration, and the transnational relationships between states and migrants.
Her book Mexico and Its Diaspora in the United States: Policies of Emigration since 1848 (Cambridge University Press, 2011) focuses on Mexican migration to the U.S. and the historical development of Mexico's diaspora engagement policies. Alexandra's approach is interdisciplinary, drawing from Sociology, Political Science and International Relations.
Her courses at The New School include "The Politics of Immigration in the United States", "Borders, Migrants and States", "Governing the Global", "Global Migration", "Democracy, Security and Migration in the Americas" and "Civil Society in Latin America: Mexico in Transition".
She currently coordinates the ICMEC's (International Center for Migration Ethnicity and Citizenship) events and is the advisor for the student Global Migration Group.
She has been a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Politics at the New School for Social Research, a Fellow at Yale University, and has worked as a senior researcher for the Americas Society/Council of the Americas and as a Political and Economic Affairs Attaché for the Consulate General of Mexico in New York.
Her articles have appeared in International Migration Review, The Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, International Migration, Social Research, Americas Quarterly, Revista Mexicana de Política Exterior and Migración y Desarrollo.
