The Peace Studies Section of ISA invites nominations for the 2016 Boulding Award. The award was established to honor Kenneth E. Boulding, a founder of the field of Peace Studies. The Award Committee seeks a graduate student research paper, delivered at the most recent ISA meetings, that is (a) theoretically based, (b) empirical (qualitative and/or quantitative), and (c) relevant to a significant problem in the field of peace studies. Any excellent exploration in the area of Peace Research is eligible. Direct submissions from graduate students and nominations from panel chairs and discussants are welcome.
The award recipient will receive a two-year membership in the ISA (including the peace studies section), a cash award of $250.00 (USD), a travel grant of up to $300 (USD) to attend next year's convention and a certificate to be awarded at the convention. A cash award of $50.00 (USD) will be awarded to the runner-up. Note: The Selection Committee reserves the right to decide not to award prizes if there are not a sufficient number of papers submitted for consideration or if the committee decides that the submitted papers are not deserving of the awards.
To nominate, please submit an electronic copy of the paper presented at the Atlanta convention to the chair of the Boulding Award Committee, Dr. Agnieszka Paczynska (email@example.com). Please include the full contact information institutional affiliations of the nominator and, if different, the nominee. Deadline for submissions: June 17, 2016.
