Professor Barry Rider OBE (1976), Fellow Commoner and Professor of Law, has been awarded the Order of Honour (First Class) by the Government of the Republic of China. The Gold Cluster in the Division of Justice has only been awarded on three previous occasions. The citation states this honour is bestowed by order of the President of the Republic of China for Professor Rider’s “outstanding achievement in promoting international cooperation on combating transnational crime”. President Ma Ying-jeou acknowledged Professor Rider’s unique contribution in promoting cooperation in law and justice.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan
