We're delighted to announce that nominations for the IPEG Book Prize are now open. The new IPEG convenor team would like to apologise that this announcement has come slightly later than is usual, but we hope you can appreciate that recent events have invariably had something of an impact.

Nominations for the prize can be made using our Google form.

The nomination process is open to IPEG members and note the following conditions:

(i) the book must have been published in the previous calendar year (in this case, 2019); 

(ii) you cannot nominate your own book; 

(iii) the book cannot be an edited volume; 

(iv) only one book can be nominated; 

(v) the person nominating the book should be a member of IPEG. 

Please also note that we have made some changes to the way in which the book prize operates. First, when nominating a book for the long list, we ask that you also include a nomination statement explaining why you think this was the best IPE book of 2019. We would ask that when nominating you try to keep your statements under 300 words in length.

Second, we have made some changes to the procedures for arriving at a final shortlist. These are all explained in more detail on the nomination form.

This year's book prize committee is made up of the following people:

Matt Bishop, Chair (University of Sheffield)

Akosua Darkwah (University of Ghana)

Andrew Gamble (University of Sheffield)

Adrienne Roberts (University of Manchester)

Lisa Tilley (Birkbeck, University of London)

Ernesto Vivares (FLACSO, Ecuador)

Nominations close on 17 July 2020.
