Christine Kovic, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Houston-Clear Lake, has conducted research in the area of human rights for the past twenty years. Her current research addresses the intersection of human rights, health, and immigration, with emphasis on the organizing efforts of Latina/os in the United States, Central American migrants crossing Mexico, the impact of enforcement and “security” policies on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Dr. Kovic has collaborated with community-based organizations that document human rights abuses and promote immigrant rights. Her previous research on indigenous rights in southern Mexico has been published in Mayan Voices for Human Rights: Displaced Catholics in Highland Chiapas (University of Texas Press), Women of Chiapas: Making History in Times of Struggle and Hope (co-editor with Christine Eber, Routledge), and a series of articles and book chapters.
