A Griffith University professor has won a prestigious prize from one of Britain’s oldest international affairs journals.
Professor Ian Hall
Professor Ian Hall, Director of the Griffith Asia Institute and part of the School of Government and International relations, received the Peter Lyon Memorial Prize of The Round Table last month.
The prize is awarded to the best policy-oriented article on a theme of ‘significance’ within the Commonwealth.
The article looked closely India’s foreign policy and argued that since the mid-2000s India had developed multialignment as a means of achieving its interests and ideas internationally.
“I am very pleased that the editors of The Round Table judged my article worthy of this prize,” said Professor Hall.
“But I’m doubly pleased to win an award named in honour of Peter Lyon, a great scholar who had an enduring interest in India, as well as much more.”
