Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development

October 14, 2009

Medals for Research on Development

The Global Development Network invites researchers and organizations from developing and transition countries to submit new research proposals, completed research papers and proposals for scaling-up development projects. This year’s competition themes seek to explore pressing global issues - globalization and regulation, international migration and regional integration.

The competition focuses on key issues such as globalization, regional integration, climate change and international migration against the backdrop of the current global economic and financial crisis, the political and economic repercussions of which can already be felt across countries and regions. The impact of these crises on the architecture of developing countries cannot be understated. They have prompted many to challenge globalization and they are also likely to hasten the structural shift in global economic power from Western countries to emerging markets.
