The Department of Economics and International Studies is delighted to announce that Patricia Prada Jimenez has been awarded the first Norman P. Barry Scholarship. The Scholarship is given by the Max Beloff Centre for the Study of Liberty and is for Patricia to continue her MPhil / DPhil research under the supervision of Professor John Clarke. A first-class alumna of the Department’s International Studies with French degree programme, Patricia is helping to market the School of Humanities’ degree programmes, and takes special pleasure in promoting the MA in Global Affairs degree programme, arranging the very successful 2009 study visit to Geneva.
Having been taught at undergraduate level by Professor Barry, Patricia knew him well, and worked closely with him as a research assistant after graduation. She was invited to accompany Professor Barry to the award ceremony in London in 2005 for his ‘Liberty in Theory’ Lifetime Award and it is thus an especial pleasure to announce her as the winner of this prestigious scholarship. We are looking forward to seeing Patricia’s research on ‘Informal Empire’, based on the relationship between Britain and Argentina, brought to a successful conclusion in the not too distant future and wish her good luck with her studies as well as offering our congratulations on the winning of the Scholarship.
