We also celebrate James Stiefvater , one of our PhD students, who has received a Postgraduate Development Field Research Award for $8,000 towards his research costs in Papua New Guinea, funded by DevNet and MFAT.

James is interested in the connections and disconnections of complex and dynamic Indigenous identities, state development, and initiatives for political autonomy. These are especially salient topics in his research sites in Papua New Guinea: the province of East New Britain and the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.

James and his family will be arriving in New Zealand in March, and he will be carrying out fieldwork towards the end of the year.

Congratulations wish you all the best

Congratulations to Isabella and Louis on both securing Postgraduate Development Field Research Awards for $6,000 towards their field research costs for their Master's in International Development. These awards are funded by MFAT and administered by DevNet.

Issie will explore whether the innovative climate financing approach that is 'Green Tourism Bonds' has a place in Samoa, and what it could mean for development. Louis’s research will examine ways to mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change on Samoa's fishing industry, learning how local knowledge can contribute to practical solutions.

Ka mau te wehi team!
