Jon Ensor


Profile picture of Jon Ensor

Jon is a social scientist with research interests in processes that can lead to increasingly equitable human development. Frequently this translates into work alongside marginalized communities focusing 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.

He has a background in human rights development practice that informs his work and his research interests remain applied and, as such, frequently interdisciplinary.

Jon is Director of the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC) at the University of York, and co-editor of the journal Climate and Development. He also co-leads the Equitable Technology Laboratory under the University of York Sparks project.
