Dr Joanne Wallis completed her PhD in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Cambridge. Her PhD research considered the role that constitution-making plays in building state and nation in post-conflict societies, using case studies of Timor-Leste and Bougainville. Her research had a particular emphasis on the opportunities for engagement between 'liberal' and 'local' approaches to governance, justice, development and security during these processes. Joanne’s Masters research considered the relationship between globalisation and development in small states.
From January 2009 to January 2012 Joanne was an Honorary Fellow of the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. From November 2008 to February 2009 she was a Visiting Scholar at the State, Society and Governance in Melanesia Project at the ANU. In 2006 she was a Fulbright Scholar at the Walker Institute of International and Area Studies at the University of South Carolina. She has also conducted research consultancies for Australian and international NGOs.
