LGBTQA Caucus Eminent Scholar Award

The LGBTQA Caucus honors an eminent scholar annually. The Award recognizes scholars who have made a significant impact on IR research on LGBTQA politics, queer theory or sexuality studies in global politics. The award also recognizes the significant contributions of scholars in teaching, mentorship, service and/or activist work. The award will be made in part on the basis of achieving year-to-year balance in terms of different LBGTQA identifications, and equitable recognition of racialized and Global South scholars  and scholars of all genders.
