The internship program offers ANU students the opportunity to undertake a research intensive, in a specialised area of public policy and or/ field of public administration, based in Taipei for academic credit. The program is funded and supported by the School of Politics and International Relations and the Australia and New Zealand School of Government with in-country support from the National Chengchi University, Taiwan.
Three students were selected to participate in the program this year:
Harrison Rule - ‘Civic Deliberation Process in Taiwan’
Natasha Tioukavkin – ‘Impact of the Act of Gender Equality in Employment 2003’, and
Frances Zhang – ‘Digital Disruption in Fintech’
The students have already made a number of site visits including trips to the preeminent research institution Academia Sinica, the Australia Office and the National Academy of Civil Service Training along with cultural visits to the National Palace Museum.
After completing their country placement students will return to Australia this month to complete their research project during Semester One 2019.
