The University of Edinburgh will award twelve scholarships to students enrolled in one of the university’s distance learning Master’s degree programs.There is one PhD fellowship available for each of the following research fields at the School of Government and International Relations: International Election Observation in an Era of Disinformation – What to Expect This fellowship provides funds for a comparative research study on how autocratic regimes attract partisan individuals and organisations to impersonate legitimate foreign election monitors during elections in their own countries. This study effort, which is also known as “zombie election monitoring,” aims to gain insight into the origins, characteristics, and/or impact of this phenomena through time and across different regions of the world. Nationalist populism is on the rise in both France and the United States. In exchange for this fellowship, the recipient will do a comparative research project on the worldwide connections of nationalist populists on many continents. Aims of the research are to gain an understanding of how nationalist populist ideas of international cooperation with likeminded parties have evolved over time, how it operates now, and what the consequences of such cooperation are. The successful candidate will be required to perform fieldwork in both France and the United States, therefore advanced-level competence in both French and English is required.

During Covid-19, there was a lot of talk about expertise politics. The scholarship will assist a comparative research study on women’s representation on national health emergency committees in four different countries: Australia, the United States, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, among other things. As a result of women’s under-representation on national scientific advisory groups, it has been identified as an important – and often overlooked – source of structural bias that may have contributed to men dominating public and academic discourse about COVID-19 as well as – and perhaps more importantly – decisions made by governments on how to respond to the outbreak. As a result of this research, we will gain a better understanding of the politics of inclusion inside expert groups, which is an important but understudied issue in the literature on the politics of expertise.

How to Understand the ‘Fair Go’ in the Antipodes— This grant will assist in the completion of a research study on the idiom “fair go” in Australia and New Zealand. The fair go is one of the most distinctive and persistent characteristics of social and political discourse in both countries, but it has not been explored in depth to determine its meanings and implications for public policy in either country. This research will look at both historical and present applications of the fair go idiom, as well as how it has influenced public policy over the course of history. It has been the goal of the School of Government and International Relations to develop a dynamic PhD program. They have access to scholarships, grants, and funding, as well as professional growth, experience, and training, as well as support and wellbeing services. The group now consists of 36 applicants, and they have access to a variety of resources. Our alumni have gone on to work as academics, public servants, entrepreneurs, lawyers, political consultants, policy advisers, and research officers, among a wide range of other jobs and fields of expertise.


About the Scholarship:

Griffith University is one of the most well-known research universities in the state of Queensland, in the Australian state of Australia. It was founded in 1971, but it wasn’t until 1975 that the institution opened its doors to its first class of students. Griffith University was the first and foremost institution in Australia to offer environmental science and Asian studies degrees. Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, an influential Australian personality, is credited with the creation of the institution that bears his name. He was previously the Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, and he was a key figure in the drafting of Australia’s Constitution in the 1960s. Every year, more than 50,000 students are accepted into Griffith University for undergraduate, postgraduate, and research degrees in a wide range of disciplines, according to the university.

The university provides courses in a variety of areas, including business and government, criminology and law, the environment, planning and architecture, humanities, music, languages, and health, among others. The university also offers courses in other languages. Griffith University is well-known for its beautiful green campuses, which may be found throughout Queensland, Australia. The Nathan campus was the university’s very first campus, and it had just 451 students at the time of its establishment. However, as time went on, the institution grew and opened campuses all across Australia, including the Northern Territory. Currently, the university has six campuses that are dispersed throughout three cities in the United States.
