"Contested Urbanism" (project funding from the EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship programme) is at the heart of the research project of Dr. Jonathan Rokem who has recently joined the faculty of the European Forum at the Hebrew University. Together with Dr. Laura Vaughan, from the University College London’s Space Syntax Lab at the Bartlett School of Architecture, Dr. Rokem examines the effect of national-level planning by comparing political and welfare policies in Sweden and Israel and the influence of individual perception, local communities, and civil society on these processes.
The project has been recently flagged on the European Commission website as a ‘policy impact success story.’
Congratulations, Jonathan!
