Raul Lejano is a professor in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University. He does reseach in social policy, environmental governance, Qualitative Social Research and Narrative Analysis, whose foremost interests involve understanding people’s deep engagements with community and environment, and reflected in how we design policy and institutions from a relational perspective. His research suggests strategies for reforming environmental governance around an ethic of care. Beginning with his first book, Frameworks for Policy Analysis: Merging Text and Context (Routledge), he has developed approaches for integrating multiple analytical lenses in interpreting environmental situations. In his (co-authored) book, The Power of Narrative in Environmental Networks (MIT Press), a theory is advanced regarding the unique capacity of narrative to capture complex human motivations and human-nonhuman relationships. The theory is further developed in his most recent (co-authored) book, The Power of Narrative: Climate Skepticism and the Deconstruction of Science (Oxford Press).
