Australian Research Council project
Our projects are funded by Australian Research Council (ARC) grants. We are supported by Future Fellowships and DECRA Fellowships in areas of national importance. The Discovery Projects scheme supports our basic and applied research and the Linkage Projects scheme promotes the development of long-term strategic alliances between higher education organisations, industry and end users.
ADI is led by Alfred Deakin Professor Fethi Mansouri. We are a large team of researchers from diverse disciplines and areas of study. We work together in a vibrant environment with a shared goal of understanding the complex social issues associated with globalising processes.
Shahram Akbarzadeh is Research Professor of Middle East & Central Asian Politics and holds the prestigious ARC Future Fellowship. He has an active research interest in the politics of Central Asia, Islam, Muslims in Australia and the Middle East.
He has published more than 40 refereed papers. Among his latest publications are a sole-authored book on Uzbekistan and the United States, a co-authored book on US Foreign Policy in the Middle East, and a co-authored book on Muslim Active Citizenship in the West.
We welcome new collaborations and partners who would like to work with us. Our four research streams – Development, Inequality and Wellbeing, Diversity and Identity, Governance, Justice and Security and Heritage, Indigeneity and Sustainability – support research opportunities for meaningful collaboration and professional development among researchers, students and external stakeholders with shared interests and priorities.
