Jocelyn Crowley

Rutgers University

Jocelyn Crowley, Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at Rutgers University, will author a book on fathers’ rights groups in the United States that examines their membership, leadership, goals, and success in improving relations between fathers and children. Using interviews with 158 individuals and observational analyses of eight different groups, Crowley will investigate the men who belong to these groups, the ways they became involved in the father’s rights cause, and the public policy goals they are promoting.
