Two opportunities for Level I Technical Training with scholarships funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) are available under the Research Project "Ministerial Survival in the Foreign Policy of the Southern Cone" (grant number 2018 / 18278-9), under the coordination of Prof. Dr. Pedro Feliú Ribeiro.
The project seeks to analyze the relevance of systemic and domestic factors in the pattern of survival of the foreign ministers of the Southern Cone from 1945 to the present day, comparing foreign policy with the areas of economy, education and health. Collaborating with a growing foreign policy literature whose unit of analysis is individual leadership, we aim to build a database with all the ministers of foreign policy, economics, education and health of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. Through Cox regressions we want to test the effect of systemic variables such as the Cold War, diplomatic proximity with the US, and domestic factors such as membership of the president's party, political regime, and presidential popularity in the longevity of the post of foreign policy minister. In addition, we seek to understand if there is a difference between foreign policy and domestic politics in administrative stability, comparing foreign policy with public policies that are close to the citizen. This project seeks to contribute empirically to the understanding of the stability of the Southern Cone foreign policy leaders, a crucial element in the formulation and implementation of a coherent policy in the long term.
The candidate will perform his activities at the International Negotiation Studies Center (CAENI), a NAP (Research Support Center) of the Institute of International Relations of USP, under the supervision of Prof. Pedro Feliú Ribeiro.
The scholarships will last for 12 months and the participant will be evaluated according to FAPESP regulations. The selected candidate will receive FAPESP Technical Training Grant I (TT-1) in the amount of BRL439.60 per month. The TT-1 Scholarship is intended for undergraduate students, with no school history and no employment relationship, with dedication of 15 hours a week to the activities supporting the research project, without any loss of academic performance.
Specific activities for the candidate(s)
The candidate will develop two main activities: data collection and training in the use of statistical software to perform survival analysis. The activities, comprised of 15 hours per week, should be conducted at CAENI, allowing the interaction and discussion of the research with other researchers. The production of a research report according to the rules of FAPESP also constitutes activity of the scholarship holder.
