About the Ester Boserup Prizes

The Ester Boserup Prize for Research on Development is awarded for outstanding social science research on development and economic history. The prize is presented to a scholar whose research has improved and deepened our knowledge of development dynamics and economic history, of poverty and wealth, of marginalisation and political participation, and of lawlessness and justice.

The Ester Boserup Thesis Prize is awarded to a brilliant PhD thesis that treats one or several issues of development dynamics, of poverty and wealth, of marginalisation and political participation, and of lawlessness and justice. The thesis must be successfully defended at the University of Copenhagen within the year in question.
