EU–Australia economic cooperation has entered an ambitious new phase in the broader context of the shifting international economic landscape, in which climate has become a central theme. Technological advances and global value chains have redefined traditional flows of goods, capital and services across borders and tested the limits of established international institutions of economic cooperation. The COVID-19 pandemic has, of course, added further complexities to these relationships.
The Centre of Excellence focuses pragmatically on such emerging issues and explores them in the context of the EU – Indo-Pacific relationship. One particular concern will be the increased policy attention to domestic supply capability across a range of essential goods and services. Comparing approaches in the EU and Australia offers valuable insights into different policy issues, providing useful material to explore their effectiveness. It will be important in these policy debates to ensure that the competitive advantages of the free trade agenda are also considered.
The Centre’s principal objective is to identify opportunities for the EU and Australia to progress the bilateral economic relationship and to pursue shared objectives in regional and multilateral contexts. We are seeking a Visiting Fellow to undertake research within this broad theme. Primarily, the Visiting Fellow will identify and undertake a project that will provide a solid academic basis for such policy debates. Ideally, this work will be undertaken between 1 March 2022 and 31 August 2022. The Visiting Fellow will be required to present their research in the form of a masterclass and a webinar for stakeholders promoting realistic policy actions, and as an ANUCES Briefing Paper. The research could also be developed into academic publications.
The Visiting Fellow will receive up to 4,500 Euros towards airfares, accommodation and living expenses. Payment is dependent on the period of stay at ANUCES and distance travelled. As travel to Australia might be difficult due to the ongoing pandemic and possible border restrictions, the ANUCES may consider alternative arrangements and funding.
