-- Call closed --

The Earth System Governance Project is calling for paper submissions for the Oran R. Young Prize.

The Oran R. Young Prize will be awarded for the first time at the Earth System Governance Tokyo Conference in January 2013.

The Oran R. Young Prize awarded by the Earth System Governance Project seeks to reward and encourage cutting-edge research on earth system governance by early-career scholars who could become the next generation of leading scholars in the field of environmental governance research – a field shaped and significantly influenced by the pioneering work of Prof. Oran R. Young.

Oran R. Young has inspired and supported countless young scholars – many of them now leading researchers and teachers in the field themselves. The Oran R. Young Prize is awarded in recognition of his invaluable contribution to advancing the frontiers of research on the institutional dimensions of global environmental change and earth system governance, and equally to honor his enthusiasm and dedication in teaching, mentoring and supporting early-career researchers.

The Oran R. Young Prize will be awarded for the best paper presented at the annual Earth System Governance Open Science Conference authored by early-career scholars. The Prize Committee is chaired by Earth System Governance Scientific Steering Committee member Heike Schroeder (University of East Anglia). The committee will select the winning paper based on academic quality and novelty as well as relevance to the Earth System Governance Research Framework.
