Episode 233 - Dr. Amy Krings: Austerity Politics: What Social Workers Need to Know About Emergency Management Laws
Interviewer: Elizabeth Bowen, PhD
Monday, February 12, 2018, 7:45:53 AM
In this episode, our guest Dr. Amy Krings discusses the increasing use of emergency management laws as a response to fiscal crises and how these policies disproportionately affect individuals residing in urban communities, particularly poor and minority populations. She describes the challenges that urban austerity measures and emergency management practices present and suggests actions that social workers can take to help improve communities, mitigate harm, and shape public policies.
Amy Krings, PhD, received her doctorate from the Social Work and Political Science Joint Doctoral Program at the University of Michigan. Her research focuses on how members of marginalized communities come together, strategically and collaboratively, to advance social justice. She is an assistant professor at Loyola University Chicago School of Social Work. As an educator, she aims to support, guide, and mentor her students while they develop their capacity and confidence as social change agents. Prior to her doctoral work, Dr. Krings worked for six years as a community organizer, grant-writer, and interim executive director at a Cincinnati non-profit.
