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 to three 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 Prof Dr Jonas Wolff. Inaugurated in 2008, the award ceremony takes place every two years and is conducted during PRIF’s Annual Conference. Published Ph.D. theses are excluded.
The next award ceremony will take place in 2023. This year's awardee is Roger Mac Ginty of Durham University. He is being considered for his book "'Everyday Peace: How So-Called Ordinary People Can Disrupt Violent Conflict" (Oxford University Press, 2021).
