Asia Society Australia Scholar-In-Residence
The Asia Society Australia Scholar-In-Residence Program is an initiative to appoint and engage leading thinkers from Australia to contribute significant research and original analysis in areas of critical importance to the current state of affairs in the Australia-Asia relationship.
The Scholar-in-Residence Program will seek to deepen Australia’s understanding of Asia and our role in the region through research, analysis and policy recommendations, and inform Australian businesses, government and education organisations of major existing and emerging trends that is impacting their future engagement in Asia.
The Scholar-in-Residence Program will be awarded annually to one established thought-leader from academia with expertise in the areas of foreign policy, international security, defence, geo-economics, and trade and investment.
