Standardising Halal: interpreting the tension between global and local

Eva Nisa
This study focuses on the expansion of the current global halal (permission according to Islamic principles) industry in Malaysia and Indonesia. It investigates the halal cultural economy—finance, food, travel, fashion, media, and cosmetics—in these two Muslim majority countries in Southeast Asia. In both countries, the Islamic cultural economy is thriving. Malaysia tops the Global Islamic Economy (GIE) indicator, while Indonesia has enormous potential in the halal economy as the largest Muslim majority country. The GIE...

Local responses to missing persons and post-conflict peacebuilding

Lia Kent
This project aims to fundamentally reshape dominant thinking on the problem of missing persons in post-conflict peacebuilding. Through the first large-scale comparative ethnography of Timor-Leste and Sri Lanka, the research will bring local community approaches, needs and practices around the missing in from the margins to the centre
of scholarly analysis and practice. Outcomes include new knowledge about local agency and community understandings of the missing that are relevant to peacebuilding, and enhanced collaborations with scholars...

Maximising accuracy and reliability of carbonate climate proxy archives

Dorrit Jacob
This project brings together expertise and cutting-edge methodology from different disciplines to identify the controls on the compositions of the shells and skeletons of marine organisms. The compositions of these materials are essential tools to reconstruct environmental conditions before modern climate records began. However, recent insights into how they form profoundly complicate and affect their interpretations. The results will enable us to develop new, realistic models for the behaviour of chemical elements in these materials....

Stars and Galaxies: The chemical abundance breakthrough

Kathryn Grasha
Measuring the chemical history of galaxies is critical to understand how galaxies form and evolve. This program aims to address shortcomings in current methods used to measure elements in a novel approach that combines observations and state-of-the-art modelling. Expected outcomes include a model for the history of the elements as the theoretical basis to derive new, robust galaxy diagnostics. There are tremendous benefits as this research topic is a major science driver for the next...
