John Robinson's work examines how macro-economic changes have redefined politics of race, poverty and neighborhood inequality within and around American cities. 

Professor Robinson's work has been supported by the Ford Foundation, the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy, the Paris Institute for Political Studies, and the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics. His current projects include a mixed-methods study of the "affordable housing" industry in the US.
