LSE academic awarded NUS-Stanford University Distinguished Fellowship
Dr Tim Forsyth, reader in the Department of International Development, has been awarded the Lee Kong Chian NUS-Stanford University Distinguished Fellowship on Contemporary Southeast Asia for the 2012-13 academic year.
The fellowship, which is awarded once every year, is based at Stanford University, California, and the National University of Singapore and includes a three month residency at each institution.
Dr Forsyth's work during the fellowship will concern how global environmental norms and expertise are interpreted and implemented in policy in Indonesia and Thailand.
Dr Forsyth said: 'This research will contribute to new initiatives that will make climate change policy work more successfully in developing countries, and provide multiple benefits for local development as well as the global environment. Singapore and Stanford are excellent places to conduct this work.'
