DongJu Lee

Research Assistant, Civic Life of Cities Lab 

Dong-Ju Lee received a PhD in Sociology from Harvard University. Her dissertation explores how women’s international non-governmental organisations facilitated the institutionalization of two seemingly contradictory reproductive policies – maternity protection and liberal abortion – among 189 countries during the twentieth century (1920-2014). Her research interests span social movement, organisations, and network analysis. Currently, she examines the network formation and structuration of international nongovernmental organisations.
