The selection committee for the Australian International Political Economy Network (AIPEN) Richard Higgott Journal Article Prize is pleased to announce the shortlist for the 2021 prize, as voted on by AIPEN members.
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 from the shortlist by the selection committee, which this year consists of Maria Tanyag (ANU), Ainsley Elbra (Sydney), Elizabeth Thurbon (UNSW) Kanishka Jayasuriya (Murdoch) and Tom Chodor (Monash). The winner will be announced by December 2021.
