Dr Amy King is a Senior Lecturer in the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre at The Australian National University. She has expertise in Chinese foreign and security policy, China-Japan relations, and the relationship between economic and security issues in the Asia-Pacific region. She holds a Westpac Research Fellowship and an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellowship (2017-2019) to investigate China's role in shaping the international economic order.
Amy's book, China-Japan Relations after World War Two: Empire, Industry and War, 1949-1971 explains how and why Japan became China's most important economic partner in the aftermath of major war, and at a time when the two countries were still Cold War opponents. Amy holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in International Relations from the University of Oxford, where she studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
