JCA Prize 2016

The co-editors of the Journal of Contemporary Asia are pleased to announce the annual award for the best article published in 2015.

For the first time, the judging panel has selected joint winners for the Journal of Contemporary Asia Prize. Each of the authors will receive $500, a letter of commendation and a complimentary 1-year subscription to the Journal. The Prize is jointly awarded to:

Patrick V. Oabel (Department of Geography, University of British Columbia, Canada) for the paper “Last of the Labour Aristocrats: Restructuring of the Philippine Sugar Industry and the Exportist Labour Market” (DOI: 10.1080/00472336.2014.953193), which appeared in Vol. 45, No. 2.


Yoonkyung Lee (Department of Sociology, SUNY Binghamton), for the paper “Sky Protest: New Forms of Labour Resistance in Neo-Liberal Korea” (DOI: 10.1080/00472336.2015.1012647), which appeared in Vol. 45, No. 3.

The co-editors congratulate the authors.

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.
