Seven Crawford School researchers were successful in this week’s ARC funding announcements.

Dr Sango Mahanty, Professor Ramesh Thakur, Associate Professor Ippei Fujiwara, Associate Professor Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt, Dr Daniel Suryadarma, Dr Shiro Armstrong and Dr John McCarthy all won ARC funding.

Dr Sango Mahanty won a Future Fellowship to further her interdisciplinary work on Frontiers of change: resources, access and political agency on the Cambodia-Vietnam borderland.

Her research explores how local actors negotiate transnational networks and markets on the Cambodia-Vietnam borderland, offering crucial insights to inform more viable and sustainable policies on environment, development and security in this strategically important region.

Future Fellowships are awarded to exceptional scholars working in areas of national importance. They provide a four-year salary to recipients and aim to retain the best and brightest mid-career researchers in Australia, and further their careers and reputations as international leaders in their fields.

Another six Crawford faculty members are involved in projects which won Discovery Project grants:

Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt’s project, Farmers of the future: Challenges of a feminised agriculture in India investigates the transforming agrarian landscape of rural India in order to understand how gender roles and relations are being re-shaped in communities and households in diverse socioeconomic and cultural contexts.

Ramesh Thakur’s project, Towards global carbon integrity: Applying integrity systems methodology to the Global Carbon Crisis will approach the global problem of carbon emissions and sustainable development by adapting an approach to analysing governance systems normally used on domestic issues, and applying it to international problems.

Ippei Fujiwara’s project, Optimal policy in the global liquidity trap will look at the optimal monetary and fiscal policy and provide a foundation for discussing policy options for the current global liquidity trap.

Daniel Suryadarma’s project, Height, BMI and demographic changes in the Asian Giants examines trends in height and body mass index of the populations of the three Asian countries: China, India and Indonesia, and looks at the links with fertility decline and urbanisation.

Shiro Armstrong’s project, The fundamental importance of foreign direct investment to Australia in the 21st century: Reforming treaty and dispute resolution practice will look at the economic and legal risks associated with the Australian Government’s policy on investor-state dispute settlement.

John McCarthy’s project, Household vulnerability and the politics of social protection in Indonesia: Towards an integrated approach, will address the weaknesses in diagnostic approaches to poverty and vulnerability in Indonesia. The research will develop a new integrated framework for conceptualising vulnerability and understanding how social protection programs provide social security in transitional environments in outer island Indonesia.

The grants were awarded as part of the ARC’s Discovery Program which aims to support high quality research essential to Australia’s innovation system for the development of new ideas, job creation, economic growth, and an enhanced quality of life in Australia.
