The Copenhagen Centre for Development Research invites nominations for the Ester Boserup Prizes 2019.

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 seventh time.

The Ester Boserup Thesis Prize 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 2018.

Nomination for the Prizes: Candidates for the Ester Boserup Prize for Research on Development can be nominated by groups or individuals. Candidates for the Ester Boserup Thesis Prize can be nominated by the thesis supervisor.

The motivation for the nomination of either prize of maximum 1 page must be sent to the Director of the Copenhagen Centre for Development Research, Christian Lund by November 30th 2018, for the 2019-Prizes. Nominations from previous years for the Ester Boserup Prize for Research on Development will still be considered.
