Just a few days left to nominate for this year’s Stein Rokkan Prize

The annual $5,000 Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research is presented by the ECPR in conjunction with the International Social Science Council and the University of Bergen.

The Stein Rokkan prize, which is named in honour of the pioneer of comparative political and social science research (pictured), is open to works in comparative studies from all social science disciplines. It is awarded to a submission deemed by our Jury to be a substantial and original contribution in comparative social science research.

Submitted work can be an unpublished manuscript of book length, a published book, or collected works published within the two years preceding the award ceremony. Edited volumes are not eligible.

The deadline for nominations for the 2017 Prize is Wednesday 15 February, so you have just a few days left to submit. See nomination procedure.
