EADI Prize for Development Studies 2008

Source: EADI E-newsletter, 15 January 2008

The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) announces the 2008 prize for excellence in development research. The prize, worth €1 000, will be awarded for an essay on an issue of development studies in any field of the social sciences submitted and written by a postgraduate student from an EADI member country or attending a programme at an institutional member of the Association.

Subjects may be chosen from any field of development studies, but contestants are asked to bear in mind that their work will be subject to scrutiny by one of the EADI Working Groups prior to being sent on to the jury. Entries coherent with Working Group themes will, therefore, clearly enjoy an advantage. A list of the Working Groups as well as the submission criteria can be found on the Association’s website.

All entries for the EADI Prize for Development Studies should reach the Association’s offices in Bonn no later than 1 March 2008 by e-mail.

The Jury for the 2008 EADI Prize for Development Studies will make its decision known in June 2008. The prize winner will be invited to the 12th General Conference of EADI (24-28 June 2008, Geneva) where the award ceremony will take place.
