The judging panel was drawn from the Editorial Board. The criteria for selection include consideration of the scope and aims of the Journal , with the panel judging the ways in which each article provides an alternative perspective on mainstream views on contemporary Asian issues and/or contributes to the development of theory, especially on the role of the state, class analysis, power and globalisation.
We hope that the articles by the prize winner and the runner up will soon be available for free download. When they are, we’ll post them here at the JCA blog.
