Notice of International Ethics Book Award Competition, 2017

Notice of International Ethics Book Award Competition, 2017

The International Ethics section of the International Studies Association announces its annual book award competition for 2017. The award is given every year at the International Ethics section business meeting at the ISA Convention. Next year, the convention is in Baltimore, February 22-25, 2017.

The prize will be an award of $200 along with a plaque to honor the author’s work. Books eligible for the award must fall into the broadly defined category of international ethics. This includes, but is not limited to, books on international descriptive ethics, international normative ethics, meta-ethics, comparative ethics, international religious ethics, international political theory, and international legal theory. Books not clearly falling into one of the above categories may be considered if members of the Selection Committee agree that it is worthy of consideration. Eligible books can be either single- or multi-authored. Edited collections will not be eligible. Textbooks, translations and memoirs are not eligible.

Authors can self-nominate if they so wish. Books must be received by the judges listed below by October 1, 2016. Books nominated will not be returned. Books to be considered must be published within a two-year period preceding the year of the competition. For instance, to be considered for the 2017 prize, books must be published in either 2015 or 2016. ‘Published’ means that the year listed in the book itself must be one of these two. All books must be in print by September 1, 2016, and past nominations will not be reconsidered. If you (or for publishers, your press) have published a book that falls within the time frame and the relevant subject matter category and you would like it considered for the prize, please send a copy of the book to each member of the committee, at the addresses listed below.
