Fellowship opportunity

We are currently inviting applications for one fellowship for a doctoral, post- doctoral, or early career (tenure-track) scholar to conduct research in Asia as part of our Regulating Globalization in South and Southeast Asia project. This project supports young global leaders to conduct interdisciplinary research on innovative governance and justice strategies to mitigate the harsher effects of economic globalization in Asia (specifically in Bhutan, Cambodia, India, Thailand, and Vietnam). The deadline has been extended to 30 September 2019 | view the pdf for full details.
