The Philippines Project runs a visiting fellowship program offering approximately five to six researchers and/or policymakers a four to six week fellowship to pursue projects focused on inclusive economic growth, trade, politics and governance in the Philippines.
The fellows will be hosted at ANU, however there may be scope for Australian academics to visit a Philippine academic or research institution.
It is envisaged that all fellows participate in the intellectual and policy life of the host School, present a paper in the Philippine forum series and/or write a short opinion piece for publication.
Fellows are encouraged to forge connections with other Australian and Philippine universities and/or institutions who work on Philippines and other East Asia regions.
In the second round for 2017, the following applicants were selected for the Philippines Project Visiting Fellowship program:
Dr Charles G.L. Donnelly “The Return of Strongman Rule in the Philippines: Black Flags, Martial Law and the Pivot”
Dr Robert Dyball et al. “Nexus Challenges in Securing Sustainable Food Systems: Implications for the Philippines”
