Description

The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics. It strives especially to promote a new level of intellectual cooperation between the Japanese and American academic and professional communities committed to and trained for advancing global understanding and problem solving. Research support to individuals is at the core of the Abe Fellowship Program. Applications are welcome from scholars and non-academic research professionals. The objectives of the program are to foster high quality research in the social sciences and related disciplines, to build new collaborative networks of researchers around the three thematic foci of the program, to bring new data and new data resources to the attention of those researchers, and to obtain from them a commitment to a comparative or transnational line of inquiry. Applicants are invited to submit proposals for research in the social sciences and related disciplines relevant to any one or any combination of the following themes: 1) Threats to Personal, Society, and International Security: Appropriate research topics include food and water insecurity, climate change, cybersecurity and terrorism, pandemics, and disaster preparedness and recovery. 2) Growth and Sustainable Development: Suitable topics include inequality and poverty, global financial stability, adjustment to globalization, and trade imbalances and agreements. 3) Social, Scientific, and Cultural Trends and Transformations: Appropriate topics include aging and demographic change, gendera and social exclusion, rural depopulation and urbanization, migration, and the expansion of STEM education among women and under-represented populations.
