The scheme is an internal research fund financed by Oxford University Press and can be used in a variety of ways to stimulate and sustain research.
The most recent beneficiaries of the Fund are:
Dr Seunghoon Chae(DPIR) and Dr Noah Bacine (CESS) - “Do Wars Build States?” – their research analyses the effect of conflict on contributions to the state and argues that states in fact continue to reap the benefits of higher revenues in post-conflict periods.
Noah and I feel grateful to be awarded the John Fell Fund (JFF) for our project, which seeks to investigate this age-old question using lab experiments.
“After testing the validity of our novel methodological approach through the JFF’s pump-priming scheme, we hope to further expand our research question to examine how different conflict environments shape wars’ impact on state-building.”
The John Fell Oxford University Press Research Fund makes available outright grants, underwriting, or loans. Awards can be made for pump-priming, to support early career researchers, for networks, collaborations and partnerships, to support bids for external funding, and for strategic investment in research assets.
