Dr Amy King is a Senior Lecturer in the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre at The Australian National University, with particular expertise in Chinese foreign and security policy, China-Japan relations, and the economics-security nexus in the Asia-Pacific region.

Her book, China-Japan Relations after World War Two: Empire, Industry and War, 1949-1971 (Cambridge University Press, 2016), 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.

She received her D.Phil in International Relations from the University of Oxford, where she studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
