In honor of its former, long-serving director Ernst-Otto Czempiel, PRIF has established an award to recognize the best post-doctoral monograph published in the field of international peace research during the previous two years. Each award holds a value of 5,000 Euro.
An awardee is selected by a jury comprising Prof Senghaas-Knobloch, Dr Jörn Grävingholt and PD Dr Jonas Wolff. Inaugurated in 2008, the award ceremony takes place every two years and is conducted during PRIF’s Annual Conference. Published Ph.D. theses are excluded.
