Jovanna Rosen

Jovanna Rosen is an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at Rutgers University-Camden. Her research examines the intersection of urban political economy, inequality, and community development. She is particularly interested in urban political conflicts and elite control over land, housing, and urban growth, the tools available to communities to resolve conflicts, the outcomes produced by these interactions, and the strategies that effectively promote social equity and spatial justice. Jovanna’s work has been published in the Annals of the American Association of Geographers, the Journal of the American Planning Association, and the Academy of Management Annals, among other publications, and has been cited in The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. Her book, Community Benefits: Developers, Negotiations, and Accountability, published with the University of Pennsylvania Press, examines what community benefits deliver.
