Visiting Assistant Professor of Governmentjbrodin@hamilton.edu
Jonas Brodin specializes in an empirically based political theory, for example, examining how ideas shape public policy. In the past, this approach has led him to investigate how the design of the built environment encourages or discourages different configurations of power. Now, however, his interests run more toward the changing nature of governance in the 21st century and how the role of the state is evolving.
A visiting assistant professor of government, Brodin is on loan for the 2019-20 academic year from The Swedish Program at the Stockholm School of Economics, where he teaches a wide range of public policy and government courses, from health and criminal justice policy to courses on the European Union, migration, and radical politics.
Brodin has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa and a doctorate from the University of Maryland, College Park.
