Assistant Research Scientist, START
Samuel Henkin’s approach to the study of political violence, instability, and conflict is the result of his own geographic education which focused on a rigorous survey of critical theory and methodological multiplicity at the leading-edge of geographic inquiry. As a political geographer, his current and past research is broadly concerned with how political violence and instability are exercised strategically to accomplish certain spatial, social, and political ends. Specific research interests include spatial relations of violence in everyday life, the intersections of political geography and security, and political violence in Southeast Asia. In sum, he is committed to an innovative research agenda that draws on varied theoretical frameworks and empirical methodologies that brings a holistic understanding to the study of political violence and the continuum it forms.
