Associate Professor Shahar Hameiri awarded ARC Future Fellowship

30 Jul 2020

The School is delighted to announce that Associate Professor Shahar Hameiri has been awarded the prestigious Australian Research Council Future Fellowship for his project,  'The Politics of Development Financing Competition in Asia and the Pacific'. 

The project aims to investigate why, when and how recipient states decide to accept international development financing from certain states and not others. Intensifying competition between provider states is hindering providers’ capacity to achieve intended policy goals, despite spending vast sums. This is the only study to explain which groups in recipient countries prefer particular providers, why, and which group’s interests are likely to prevail. It expects to develop enhanced research and policy capacity to analyse and engage effectively in competitive environments. This should significantly improve Australian international development financing's outcomes and help recipient states obtain financing that meets their needs.
