Dayra Lascano

Graduate Student


I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Government at Cornell University, specializing in International Relations with a minor focus on Comparative Politics. My academic pursuits revolve around the in-depth study of International Organizations and their pivotal role managing and facilitating international cooperation.


Research Focus

My research focuses on understanding the conditions that promote successful cooperation among political leaders through International Organizations. I aim to utilize quantitative methods, including large-sample scientific techniques and in-depth case studies, to refine existing theories and provide valuable insights into the dynamics of IOs, particularly in relation to the interplay between formal institutions and informal norms.
