GIGA Comparative Area Studies Award
The GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies has established itself as a center of academic and research excellence in Comparative Area Studies (CAS). Therefore, the GIGA has decided in 2013 to establish a biannual award for the Best Scholarly Article in the field of CAS, including contributions to political science, economics, contemporary history or any other social science discipline that relates to the CAS concept as outlined on the GIGA webpage:
The award ceremony for the second CAS prize will take place at a prestigious event/conference in early 2016. Aside from the honor, the winning article will be awarded €2,500 in prize money, and the author will be invited to attend the award ceremony.
: Submissions should have been published in English sometime between 2013 and 2015, be located in the field of CAS, and contribute to developments and advancements in the theory or practice of comparative area studies. A relevant article of which the status is "accepted" or "forthcoming" may be accepted at the discretion of the committee chair. For these hitherto unpublished contributions, authors must arrange for the given journal to confirm both the article’s status and the projected year of publication. GIGA staff is excluded from eligibility. Articles may be single-authored or co-authored.
: The award committee will consider both journal editors’ recommendations and peer nominations. Scholars who wish to nominate a peer are requested to shortly disclose their relation to the nominee. Please submit the article you wish to nominate, along with your and the (main) author’s full contact details, to Gabriele Tetzlaff at cas[@]giga-hamburg.de by 15 September 2015. The subject matter should read "GIGA CAS Award".
: The winner will be notified of the award committee’s decision by mid December 2015. Shortly thereafter the GIGA will make public the announcement via its media channels.
