It is our great pleasure to announce the call for SHAPE-SEA Research Award under SHAPE-SEA Project (Strengthening Human Rights and Peace Research and Education in ASEAN/Southeast Asia). SHAPE-SEA is a collaboration of member universities in the ASEAN University Network – Human Rights Education (AUN-HRE) and Southeast Asian Human Rights Network.
As part of the project, we would like to honour excellent research in fields of human rights and/or peach studies with a special SHAPE-SEA Research Award.
There are two categories of awards that we will be handing out:
• First category is the Emerging Researcher award for Masters and PhD candidates from all Southeast Asian universities who have completed their dissertations/thesis.
• The second category is an open General Public category for research done by academics and civil society members (individual not projects) who are from the Southeast Asia region.
The research has to be about human rights or peace studies in Southeast Asia and should be within the themes of the SHAPE-SEA project which are:
– ASEAN and human rights
– Business and human rights
– Peace and stability
– Governance and justice
– Academic freedom
In this regard, we would like to invite you to nominate any researcher from your university in any of the above mentioned 2 categories. A general public researcher can nominate himself. An emerging researcher (i.e. postgraduate student) must be nominated by their supervisor.
The nominee has to have completed their research and published in the form of a dissertation/thesis, publication or a report. The full work can either be emailed to us or posted to the addresses below for judging by a panel of experts. The panel will judge the work based on scholarly quality, the level of contribution to the field and the timeliness and relevance of the work.
The deadline is 15 November 2016 at midnight Kuala Lumpur time and the Research Awards will be announced by 10 December 2016.
