Brief Biography

Dr Anthony Ware is an Early Career Development Fellow at Deakin, with awards for teaching excellence and several early career fellowships and scholarships.

Anthony completed his doctorate at Deakin University, out of which he published a book entitled Context-Sensitive Development – how International NGOs operate in Myanmar. He has published over a dozen peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, and given over twenty conference and seminar presentations of his research. Anthony is a member of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, and adviser to the board of GraceWorks Myanmar, and a key member of the steering committee toward the formation of a new Australia Myanmar Institute.

Anthony currently has grant funding for a project entitled Development in a Pariah State: An Investigation into Actor Roles, Approaches and Modalities in Myanmar 1990-2010, and is the lead researcher on a new project being funded by Mission Australia exploring participatory approaches to community development amongst the indigenous population on Mornington Island, NT. He is researching and writing on development in difficult socio-political contexts (failed, fragile, pariah), Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD), and using development assistance to support democratic transition in Myanmar. In 2012 he hosted a successful symposium at ADRI entitled: Fragile, Failed, Pariah: Development in Difficult Socio-Political Contexts.

His other research interests include anything to do with development, the socio-political context and reform in Myanmar, aid effectiveness (particularly in relation to capacity building of civil society), and religious communities, faith-based organisations and inter-religious partnerships in development.
