Our Distinguished Contribution Prize recognises contribution to the promotion of excellence in the discipline of International Studies over a substantial period of time. To be considered for this prize you need to have made a contribution of demonstrable distinction to the intellectual development and the leadership of the discipline, with a record of achievement that is recognised as having added considerable prestige to International Studies in the UK and beyond.
The winner will be recognised at our annual conference and will receive a glass plaque.
A selection panel is formed and chaired by our Honorary President, reporting to the Executive Committee. The panel takes soundings across the discipline and makes a recommendation to the Executive Committee. We reserve the right not to give the award in any given year.
