Professor Wil Hout appointed Research Associate at Murdoch University's Asia Research Centre

The Asia Research Centre at Murdoch University in Perth, Australia, has appointed ISS professor Wil Hout as one of its Research Associates. The appointment was made in light of Professor Hout's research activities with fellows at the Asia Research Centre over the past decade.

The most recent collaborative research project was the AusAID funded 'Achieving Sustainable Demand for Governance: Addressing Political Dimensions of Change'. The project, which was led by Richard Robison (former Professor of Political Economy at ISS and Emeritus Professor at Murdoch University), resulted in the publication of the book Political Economy and the Aid Industry in Asia, written by Jane Hutchison, Wil Hout, Caroline Hughes and Richard Robison, and published by Palgrave Macmillan (2014).
