Jonathan Ensor

Research Information

As a Professor at the Stockholm Environment Institute (in the Department of Environment and Geography, University of York), Jonathan is an applied social scientist with research interests in processes that can lead to increasingly equitable human development. Frequently this translates into work alongside marginalised communities focussing on disaster risk reduction and environmental change, the governance and politics of technology and infrastructure, and how processes of contestation and learning can account for power and social justice in ‘resilient’ development. Jonathan has a background in human rights development practice and, from 2007 to 2012, led research into community-based adaptation for the NGO Practical Action. These experiences continue to inform his work. His research interests remain applied and, as such, are frequently interdisciplinary. Jonathan is also Co-Editor in Chief of the journal Climate and Development and Theme Lead for the Commonwealth Futures Climate Research Cohort.
