APCD alumnus, Dr Srinjoy Bose, has been elected Durham International Junior Research Fellow and Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow. This prestigious and highly competitive post-doctoral award is funded under the European Union COFUND (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action) scheme.
The fellowship will be held at the School of Government & International Affairs (SGIA), Durham University, for the 2017-2019 Academic Years. Srinjoy will (a) work on revising his PhD dissertation (that investigated the role of legitimacy in Afghanistan’s statebuilding enterprise) for publication as a monograph, (b) undertake a follow-on project that seeks to add to the critique of the rise of democracy promotion, and employs a political economy framework to understand the more focused research on the perverse effects of elections in Afghanistan. In addition, Srinjoy will work towards conceiving and submitting collaborative and interdisciplinary proposals for long-term grants and edited volumes. During his fellowship, Srinjoy will return to Afghanistan to conduct fieldwork, and hopes to undertake a visiting fellowship at Columbia University’s School of International & Public Affairs (SIPA).
Srinjoy is presently Senior Teaching Fellow in Statebuilding and Peacebuilding at Durham University. Details of the COFUND are available here. The APCD and the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs congratulate Srinjoy on this exciting opportunity and wish him all the very best in this new endeavour!
