Westminster Law School doctoral researcher wins accolade for dissertation

Law 1 June 2015

Tallyn Gray, who completed his PhD with Westminster Law School last year, was awarded a Social Sciences accolade for most groundbreaking subject matter by the International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS).

The ICAS prizes are awarded for outstanding English language works in the field of Asian Studies and for the best dissertations in the fields of Social Sciences and Humanities.

Tallyn was shortlisted for this thesis Justice and Transition in Cambodia, 1979-2014: Process, Meaning and Narrative. The judges commented that his thesis was compellingly written, meticulously researched, and theoretically sophisticated, unravelling the complex narratives of justice that have shaped Cambodia’s history of violence.

Tallyn attended the opening ceremony of ICAS 9 in Adelaide, South Australia on 6 July 2015.
