The Society of Women in International Political Economy (SWIPE) committee is delighted to announce the 2014 recipient of the Mentor Award, Professor Rorden Wilkinson.  Prof. Wilkinson is being honoured for his extraordinary dedication to mentoring women in the field of IPE. As the many nomination letters attest, Prof. Wilkinson has made a profound difference in the careers of women across many decades and from around the world. In the words of one nominator, “If the future of our community of practice is slowly becoming egalitarian along gender, racial, cultural and class lines, Rorden has and still is distinctively contributing to this significant, but often unrecognized, transformation.” ISA members are encouraged to join us at the IPE Section reception at 6:30pm on Friday 28 March in the Dominion North, Sheraton to recognize Prof. Wilkinson’s outstanding contribution to IPE.

Professor Wilkinson is Professor of International Political Economy in the School of Social Sciences and Research and PhD Director, Brooks World Poverty Institute, University of Manchester. He has published nine books and over 30 research articles. His most recent work—What’s Wrong with the WTO and How to Fix it—is published by Polity in August 2014.  Recent edited collections include International Organization and Global Governance (with Thomas G. Weiss, Routledge, 2014); Trade, Poverty, Development: Getting beyond the WTO’s Doha Deadlock (with James Scott, Routledge, 2013); and The Millennium Development Goals and Beyond: Global Development After 2015 (with David Hulme, Routledge, 2012).  He co-edits, with Thomas G. Weiss, the Global Institutions series for Routledge, is a member of the Editorial Board of the international public policy journal Global Governance, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
