Former PAIS student wins dissertation prize
Nastia van der Meer, BA (Hons) History and Politics, 2019, has won the Undergraduate Dissertation Prize competition of the Council for British Research in the Levant – for best UG dissertation on the Levant in 2019.
Nastia's dissertation, supervised by Nicola Pratt, compared the non-violent resistance methods used by indigenous populations to resist settler colonial oppression in the contexts of Apartheid South Africa and modern-day Israel-Palestine. The assessors found the dissertation to be “highly original and cutting edge with a sophisticated approach”. Congratulations to Nastia!
