Associate Professor Tom Vicino recently co-published “Waterfront Politics: Revisiting the Case of Camden, New Jersey’s Redevelopment“ with Lindsay Morgia, a graduate of the Master of Urban and Regional Policy Program. The article appeared in Urban Research and Practice, the peer-reviewed journal of the European Urban Affairs Association.
Waterfront Politics is based on a research paper Lindsay wrote for Professor Vicino’s course, The 21st Century City: Urban Opportunities and Challenges in a Global Context. She and Professor Vicino presented the paper at the Annual Meeting of the Urban Affairs Association in 2012. The article, which examines why urban redevelopment projects fail, is part of a collection of articles in Urban Research and Practice that examines the politics of economic development policy.
Professor Vicino is an Associate Professor of Political Science in the Department of Political Science and is the Director of the Master of Public Administration Program in the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs. He is a nationally recognized expert on the political economy of metropolitan areas and the author of three books on issues of metropolitan development and the growth of decline of cities and suburbs. He received his Ph.D. in Public Policy from the University of Maryland Graduate School, Baltimore.
