IVR Young Scholar Prize

Young Scholars, not over 35 years of age, are cordially invited to write a paper to be published in the ARSP.

Papers submitted for the IVR-Prize

  • should deal with the subjects of the 26th IVR World Congress on Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy to be held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 21–27 July, 2013, “Human Rights, Democracy, Rule of Law and Contemporary Social Challenges in Complex Societies”;
  • be written in one of the ARSP languages: English, French, German or Spanish;
  • not exceed the length of 18-20 pages including footnotes (about 2,300 key strokes each page).

The entry shall be sent to Dr. Annette Brockmöller, managing editor of the ARSP, Auf dem Lärchenberge 14 C, 30161 Hannover, Germany

Deadline for submission is 20th January 2013. Only one submission by each competitor is allowed. The date of birth should be given. To facilitate the assessment of the papers competitors who present their papers in French, German or Spanish are requested to add an English translation. The participation in the IVR-Prize competition does not exclude the paper from being submitted to the Congress (for presentation in the working groups). The papers received will be read by a panel of judges appointed by the Executive Committee of the IVR in conjunction with the Editorial Board of the ARSP. The prize winner will be awarded US $ 1,000 and be given the opportunity to deliver a special “IVR-Prize Lecture” at the Belo Horizonte World Congress (2013) of the IVR. The prize-winner’s paper will be published in the ARSP. The panel of judges can recommend other submitted papers for publication in the Congress Proceedings or the ARSP.
