Kathleen E. Foley is a fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) and a research affiliate with the Pluralism Project at Harvard University. She holds a PhD in City and Regional Planning from Cornell University, where she focused on land use planning and conflict management in public review processes. Her dissertation identified implications for conflict management and public policy from mosque development in the US suburbs. She is particularly interested in the civic engagement of immigrants via participation in public review processes, as well as the influence of public negotiation and compromise on the evolution of a distinctly American form of mosque architecture.
