Enia’s research explores the politics of preventing and mitigating low probability, high impact events, specifically nuclear weapons proliferation and large natural disasters. Many assume the potentially huge and negative consequences of these events make the politics different – or should make them different they’re not already. Enia’s research dispels these myths using the theories and tools of political economy, focusing on the way institutions structure the political incentives on these issues. Contrary to what many assume, the politics that underpin these extraordinary issues are often very ordinary.
