Dr. Nufar Avni

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow

I am an urban geographer and planner. I earned my PhD at the School of Urban Planning at McGill University, Canada. I currently hold a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship (2018-2020). My research project, ‘Divided Communities’, investigates the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion in three neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem, from the perspective of planning, infrastructure, civic engagement and local leadership.

My main research interests are the role of justice and equity in planning policies, urban redevelopment, and planning in spaces of ethnic conflict. My recent publications are featured in Geoforum, Urban Geography, Cities, and International Journal of Heritage Studies. 

You can find me on  Researchgate , academia and google scholar
