SNIS AWARD 2010 for the best thesis in International Studies

The SNIS reminds of the submission deadline for the SNIS Award 2010 that offers CHF 5000 for the best thesis in international studies submitted in a Swiss University in 2010. Submissions must be received before 31 January 2011.

Submitted PhD theses can deal with a wide range of academic disciplines, such as political science, economics, sociology, social and cultural anthropology, law, history, geography, environmental sciences, and related areas. In fact, the SNIS considers that International Studies deal not only with the analysis of international relations, but with phenomena that transcend traditional national-state boundaries and which may be addressed by a large spectrum of academic disciplines. 

A jury composed of experts in their field of competence will evaluate the PhD thesis submitted. A thesis that can convince the jury beyond disciplinary boundaries is a clear asset.
