Juan Manuel Arbona

Associate Professor Growth and Structure of Cities Program, Bryn Mawr College, USA

Juan Manuel Arbona is Associate Professor and Chair, Growth and Structure of Cities, Bryn Mawr College.

He earned his Ph.D. from the Department of City and Regional Planning, Cornell University.

Arbonas current research explores two intersecting trends: the role of national and municipal governments in promoting the urban informal economy as a pillar for economic growth and poverty eradication; and the role of those depending on the urban informal economy as political actors in the city of El Alto, Bolivia. Concomitantly, a new line of research that Arbona is developing is the question of indigenous people in urban environments, and the ways in which historical memory and traditions shape the structure and political life of a city.

His publications include "Neo-liberal ruptures: Local political entities and neighbourhood networks in El Alto, Bolivia" (Geoforum); "Locating Human Dignity at the Center of the Poverty Debate" (CROP Newsletter).
