2012 Prize for Excellence in Development Research

The European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) announces the 2012 prize for excellence in development research. The prize, worth 1000 euro, 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 can be found on the Association's website at www.eadi.org/working-groups.html.

All entries for the EADI Prize for Development Studies should reach the Association's offices in Bonn no later than 30 April 2012 via e-mail: to prize2012@eadi.org.

The Jury for the 2012 EADI Prize for Development Studies will make its decision known in September 2012. The prize winner will be invited to the Association's Annual Directors' meeting in Autumn 2012, where the award ceremony will take place. Both the winning entry and other high quality entries might be considered for publication in the European Journal of Development Research, upon the decision of its Editors after a refereeing process.
