The AIIA congratulates Morten B. Pedersen of UNSW Canberra for winning the 2013 Boyer Prize.
His paper, ‘How to promote human rights in the world’s most repressive states: lessons from Myanmar’, published in Volume 67, Issue 2, 2013, was judged to be original and innovative and likely to have a lasting impact.
