POLIS is pleased to announce that Dr Amrita Narlikar, Reader in International Political Economy and the Director of the Centre for Rising Powers, has been awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for 2013-2014, to work on a new research project "The Power of the Poor: International Economic Negotiations in a Globalising World". The Leverhulme Research Fellowships are awarded on the basis of a competition that is open to experienced researchers across the full range of academic disciplines. The scheme is a highly competitive one: 588 applications were reviewed this year with a success rate of 16%. The grant will allow POLIS to appoint a replacement lecturer to cover Dr Narlikar's teaching while she is working on the project.
