Dr Shiro Armstrong of the Crawford School has won a Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Public Policy and Outreach for his work on shaping public policy debates in the region, particularly through East Asia Forum.
The award was handed out as part of the annual Staff Excellence Awards. The Award for Public Policy and Outreach is given each year to someone who has made an outstanding contribution to public policy formulation or debate.
In his citation for the award, Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Young said Armstrong was “commended for his exceptional contribution to the reach and influence of ANU in the field of public policy.
“As an early career academic, Shiro has influenced the shape of debate about public policy affairs not only within Australia, but across the Asia-Pacific region, and globally.
“Shiro has achieved this through his critical role both in driving the establishment and managing the growth of East Asia Forum, and through his own rigorously persuasive contribution in an extremely important area of policy debate.”
Armstrong said that he was delighted to receive the award.
“It was a nice occasion, and it was nice to recognised as making a contribution,” he said.
Also honoured at the ceremony was the Crawford School’s Professor Bruce Chapman, who was given an award for 25 years service.
