The Success of Neutrality? The perception and recognition of the Scandinavian Asiatic Companies by the Great East India Monopoly rivals

I had the privilege of being awarded an Economic History Society PhD Bursary for the second year of my PhD at the University of St Andrews. My thesis examines the development of strategies enabling smaller companies to subsist on the trade within China and Europe, like the Swedishand the Danish East India Company. I am very grateful to the EHS for its support. This bursary contributed towards my tuition, so it allowed me to fully concentrate carrying out research in the archives of London, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
