Call for applicants for MA and PhD scholarships for the Masters of Arts in Social Science (Development Studies) program through the Regional Center for Social Science and Sustainable Development (RCSD), and the PhD in Social Science (International Program), both at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Chiang Mai University, to commence study in June 2022.
Both MA and PhD students will be funded as part of the MyClimate research project – a partnership between the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS – Dansk Institut for Internationale Studier), the Nyan Corridor, RCSD at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Chiang Mai University, and The Highland Institute in northeast India, funded through the Danish research council for development research.
The overall objective of the MyClimate research project is to strengthen academic and policy understandings of the linkages between climate change actions and conflict dynamics in Myanmar’s contested ethnic border regions. The project will produce new empirical knowledge on how local communities adapt to climate change and how state actors, civil society organizations and political movements across Myanmar and its border regions address climate change and the interlinked fields of environmental conservation, natural resource management and extraction, land use and pollution.
