Carleton’s Canadian Foreign Policy Journal’s Best Paper Prize Awarded to Mary Young and Susan Henders

Carleton University’s Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (CFPJ) awarded the Maureen Appel Molot Best Paper Prize to Mary Young and Susan Henders of York University.  Henders and Young won the 2012 installment of the prize for their piece, Other diplomacies and the making of Canada­Asia relations.

“This year’s winner is especially important because the authors are emerging scholars whose work was featured in a special issue on Canada-Asia relations funded by the Government of Canada and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC),” said David Carment, professor of International Affairs, Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute (CDFAI) fellow and editor of the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal. “These papers represent some of the best policy research on Asia.”

The paper is available for a limited time at:
