Winners of the 2017 Case Writing Competition announced

30 May 2018

We were impressed by the quality of the entries to this year's competition, and enjoyed learning more about a diverse range of issues from the Cambodian healthcare system to cryptocurrency. It was heartening to read submissions that had clearly examined their topics from many angles, taken into account a variety of stakeholders, and considered how theory could apply to practice.

It gives us great pleasure to award the winners of the 2018 Case Writing Competition (In no particular order).
