Dr Sally White
The PIES (Partnership in Islamic Education Scheme) program is an externally funded program which brings Indonesian PhD students from the Islamic higher education sector to ANU for two semesters. Sally’s own research interests focus on Islam and gender in Indonesia. She has been involved in a number of projects studying different aspects of Islam in Indonesia, including a sourcebook of readings on Islam in Southeast Asia and an ARC-funded project on terrorism in Indonesia in which her role was to research the involvement of women in jihadist networks

DFAT has doubled the funding on a wide-ranging research project by PSC to explore how domestic political concerns in Southeast Asian countries are impacting the stability of the rules-based order in the region, and what Australia can do to assist.
