Dr. Jantzi’s expertise went beyond his home base of the sociology and social work department to EMU’s Center for Justice & Peacebuilding, which he helped establish in the mid-1990s and served as director for seven years. He also taught courses in language, religion, business and history. He has extensive experience in international development, particularly in dealing with conflicts generated by the developmental process and those related to natural resources. His doctoral studies were in the sociology of development with concentrations in linguistics and Latin American studies.
