Join us for Daybreak Dialogues featuring Scott Bollens, professor of urban planning and public policy.

Politically contested cities in Israel, Palestine, South Africa, Northern Ireland, Lebanon, Spain, former Yugoslavia, and Cyprus represent a complex and emotional kaleidoscope of hostility and competition among groups defined by ethnic, religious, and nationalistic identity. Based on 25 years of research, fieldwork, and more than 350 interviews, Professor Scott Bollens will engage Social Ecology ChangeMakers with stories of intimate and provocative encounters of people living in cities of enduring political conflict and violence.
