Assistant Professor Woo Jun Jie from HSS's Public Policy and Global Affairs Programme and his fellow co-authors were awarded the 2016 Ken Young Prize on 4 March 2016 for their paper entitled "From Tools to Toolkits in Policy Design Studies: The New Design Orientation Towards Policy Formulation Research", which was published in 2015 in Policy and Politics 

The article was lauded by the journal's co-editor as "a comprehensive analysis of the field of policy-design and implementation" and "an exemplar of a 'Research Provocation'".  

The Ken Young Prize is awarded to the best article published in Policy & Politics during the previous calendar year selected by a panel of judges. 

Policy & Politics is a leading international journal in the field of public and social policy. It spans the boundaries  between theory and practice and links macroscale debates with micro-scale issues with government bodies and provides expert advice to high-level government officials.
