About Hilary

Botein's research focuses on the factors that influence urban development, with special attention to the social politics of policies and programs underlying affordable housing and community development. She also is interested in how housing programs can meet the needs of vulnerable populations – and in how they fail. Prior to her academic career, she worked for eighteen years as an attorney and policy analyst on affordable housing and economic justice issues, primarily in New York City. She serves as a public member on the New York City Rent Guidelines Board, which determines rent adjustments for all rent-stabilized apartments in New York City.
