Prof. Bollens studies urbanism and nationalism in politically contested cities. He has interviewed over 300 urban professionals and community advocates in Jerusalem, Beirut, Belfast, Johannesburg, Nicosia (Cyprus), Sarajevo and Mostar (Bosnia), and Barcelona and Basque cities (Spain) about the role of urban policy and city building amidst nationalistic ethnic conflict and political transitions. His most recent book is City and Soul in Divided Societies (2012, Routledge).
