Posted On: 2007-05-07

Congratulations to Dr Maria Del Mar FRANCESCH-HUIDOBRO, who was honored the 2005-06 Best Dissertation Awards (PhD category) by the Hong Kong Political Science Association. Maria's thesis - 'A "discipline governance" approach to government-NGOs relations: the structures and dynamics of environmental politics and management in Singapore' - studies the relationship between government and non-governmental organizations in Singapore's environmental sector and concludes that governance in Singapore is extensively consultative but contained and not fully participatory.
