Open for Nominations: The Ester Boserup Prize for Research on Development and the Ester Boserup Thesis Prize 2018

The Copenhagen Centre for Development Research invites nominations for the Ester Boserup Prizes 2018. The Ester Boserup Prize for Research on Development is awarded for outstanding social science research on development and economic history. The prize will be presented to a scholar whose research has improved and deepened our knowledge of development dynamics and economic history, of poverty and wealth, of marginalization and political participation, and of lawlessness and justice. The prize is being awarded for the sixth time. The Ester Boserup Thesis Prize (awarded for the first time in 2015), will be awarded to a brilliant PhD thesis that treats one or several issues of development dynamics, of poverty and wealth, of marginalization and political participation, and of lawlessness and justice. The thesis must be successfully defended at the University of Copenhagen in 2017.
