We are delighted to announce that the winner of this year’s award is Tom Garvey.

Tom's dissertation was entitled "Reassessing the development experiences of Gujarat and Kerala". It was judged to be of an excellent standard and was awarded an impressive mark by all of the examiners for the MSc in Contemporary India.
