The Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) at Jacobs University and Universität Bremen is looking for “an exceptional paper combining cutting-edge research, relevance and originality”. The award will be given for one single-authored and one co-authored paper. For the latter, co-authorship with doctoral or postdoctoral fellows and faculty members from BIGSSS or other institutions is possible, with a BIGSSS doctoral fellow as first author. In addition to the academic recognition, the award includes a prize of € 500.
Last year, I won the single-author category with my article “Overlapping Agendas and Peacekeepers’ Ability to Protect” (published in International Peacekeeping) while the award for best co-authored paper went to Vladimir Ponizovskiy, Murat Ardag, Lusine Grigoryan, Ryan Boyd, Henrik Dobewall and Peter Holtz for the paper “Development and Validation of the Personal Values Dictionary: A Theory-Driven Tool for Investigating References to Basic Human Values in Text” (published in European Journal of Personality).
