Dr. Jason S. Enia (Ph.D., U. of Southern California)
Dr. Enia's research focuses on the political economies of conflict. He is particularly interested in the ways in which political and economic institutions create incentives toward violence or peace. His recent work explores these dynamics in the context of international politics, looking at the institutional dynamics associated with weapons regimes, as well as in the context of domestic politcs, looking at the role that political institutions play in the face of natural disasters. His research has appeared in The Nonproliferation Review, Review of International Studies, and Negotiation Journal. In addition, Enia has published a popular pedogogical case study through the Georgetown University Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (GUISD) exploring the gap between promise and delivery in international disaster relief aid.
