Jason Enia is the Director of the Center for the Study of Disasters & Emergency Management and an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Sam Houston State University.
How do institutions (i.e., rules, laws, shared understandings, etc.) affect the politics of disaster prevention, mitigation, management, and recovery? Enia’s research explores this question in the context of natural & unnatural disasters.
Enia teaches courses on international relations, international political economy, conflict & violence, comparative disaster politics, weapons proliferation, and research methods.
