The Earth System Governance Project is calling for nominations for the Oran R. Young Prize.
The Oran R. Young Prize will be awarded for the fourth time at the 2016 Nairobi Conference on Earth System Governance. The 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.
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 Chris Gordon (University of Ghana). The committee will select the winning paper based on academic quality and novelty as well as relevance to the Earth System Governance Research Framework.
