The selection committee for the Australian International Political Economy Network (AIPEN) Richard Higgott Journal Article Prize is pleased to announce the articles nominated by AIPEN members for the longlist for the 2021 prize.
The prize will be awarded to the best article published in 2020 (online early or in print) in international political economy (IPE) by an Australia-based scholar.
The prize defines IPE in a pluralist sense to include the political economy of security, geography, literature, sociology, anthropology, post-coloniality, gender, finance, trade, regional studies, development and economic theory, in ways that can span concerns for in/security, poverty, inequality, sustainability, exploitation, deprivation and discrimination.
The overall prize winner will be decided by the selection committee, comprised of AIPEN members. Before that decision can be made, we now require AIPEN members to vote on the longlist to establish the final shortlist of four articles for deliberation.
Voting is being conducted online through Election Buddy and is open to all members of the AIPEN e-list. Voting is open from 9am on Friday 1 October and closes 5pm on Thursday 21 October (AEDT).
When voting opens, existing members will receive an email with instructions on how to vote.
Voting is also open to new subscribers to the AIPEN e-list. To subscribe, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 20 October. Once you have subscribed you will soon be added to the voter list and will receive an email with voting instructions.
