Post Doctorate Award on Central America and the Caribbean at St Antony's college

The developing regions of the world are often treated as a subject of interdisciplinary study in university in, for example, programs of African, Asian or Middle Eastern studies. Yet there is not a strong tradition for treating North America, including Central America and the Caribbean, as a region, even though the continent includes some of the richest and poorest countries in the world. This grant will allow St Antony's College at the University of Oxford to establish a 2-year post doctoral position on Central America and the Caribbean under the leadership of Canadian historian, Margaret MacMillan. The position will be awarded to a scholar from the region, in keeping with IDRC's philosophy that developing country researchers are best placed to identify and tackle development challenges.
