Ernst-Otto Czempiel Award

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. Book versions of doctoral dissertations and books by authors above the age of 44 at the time of publication are excluded.
