Dr. Robert Jenkins has a combined thirty years of teaching experience at UNC and Yale University. He regularly teaches courses on international organizations, Transatlantic security, ethnic conflict and international intervention in former Yugoslavia, crises and change in Russia and Eastern Europe, and the comparative political mobilization of race and ethnicity. He has led study abroad programs in the Balkans and Vienna, Brussels and London, and Cape Town, South Africa. Common themes of these experiential programs are the activities of international organizations and conflicts over race and ethnic identity. In the past three years, he has systematically incorporated climate change into his teaching on security and international organizations. Based on this understanding of the growing threat of climate change and the range of global efforts to develop climate policies, he will bring his enthusiasm and passion for teaching and learning to this new course.
