Fifteen Young Scholars from the Asia-Pacific region were selected to participate in tutorials and a research dissemination workshop which was held before the 2010 International Communication Association (ICA) conference in Singapore. The selected Young Scholars also had the opportunity to attend the ICA conference and had their travel and accommodation expenses covered. This was an exceptional opportunity to learn about conducting policy-relevant research and to participate in a leading international scholarly conference.
The event was co-organised by LIRNEasia and the Department of Communication and New Media (CNM) of the National University of Singapore (NUS).
The tutorials included topics such as “Communicating for policy influence” and “supply and demand side research”. The workshop included presentations of LIRNEasia’s mobile 2.0 project as well “ICTs and climate change” and “Political Mobilization in Philippines” from CNM, NUS.
