Published: 2 May 2024

Erik Martinez Kuhonta, Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at McGill, is the recipient of the John H. McArthur Research Fellowship for 2024-2025 in recognition of his outstanding scholarship.

Awarded by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada), the Fellowship program recognizes exceptional scholars with a deep commitment to policy-relevant research and interest in shaping the future of Canada’s engagement with the Indo-Pacific region, with a special emphasis on South and Southeast Asia.

Kuhonta’s research is centred on comparative political development, state formation, democracy, political economy, religion, and comparative-historical analysis, with a regional focus on Southeast Asia. He has held visiting fellowships at Stanford University, the National University of Singapore, the East-West Center (Honolulu), and Kyoto University.

He is the author of The Institutional Imperative: The Politics of Equitable Development in Southeast Asia published by Stanford University Press in 2011, which was short-listed for the Canadian Political Science Association Prize in Comparative Politics. He is co-editor of Party System Institutionalization in Asia: Democracies, Autocracies, and the Shadow of the Past published by Cambridge University Press in 2015 and Southeast Asia in Political Science: Theory, Region, and Qualitative Analysis published by Stanford University Press in 2008.

The John H. McArthur Research Fellowship is dedicated to the memory and legacy of John H. MacArthur, a world-renowned business educator, Officer of the Order of Canada, Dean Emeritus at Harvard Business School, and former Chair of the APF Canada Board of Directors.
