Congratulations to Dr Amy King, who has been awarded the 2013 Dasturzada Dr Jal Pavry Memorial Prize for her DPhil thesis entitled Imperialism, Industrialisation and War: The Role of Ideas in Chinas Japan Policy, 1949-1965. The Pavry Prize is awarded annually by the Social Sciences Board to an outstanding thesis at the University of Oxford on a subject in the area of international peace and understanding.

She is currently working on a book that examines China’s foreign economic policy towards Japan during the Cold War based on hundreds of recently declassified documents from the Chinese Foreign Ministry Archive.
