Journal of Contemporary Asia

The Journal of Contemporary Asia offers an annual award for the best article published each year. The judging panel is 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.
