CROP International Studies in Poverty Prize 2014

CROP in cooperation with Zed Books, requests entries for the CROP International Studies in Poverty Prize 2014.

Deadline: September 15, 2014

We seek original, high-quality, alternative and critical academic manuscripts. Works challenging the dominant thinking and knowledge about poverty and providing sound contributions to the eradication and/or prevention of poverty in our world are especially welcomed.

Poverty must be the central focus of the monograph. Innovative manuscripts are accepted from all disciplines of the Social Sciences and the Humanities. CROP is especially (but not exclusively) interested in the themes of Poverty and Human Rights, Gender Disparity, Policy Innovation, the MDG process, and Global Justice.

Entries should be original and written in the English language. They should not have been published partially or in full in any format, including electronically.

Manuscript length should be approx. 80,000–100,000 words, and only electronic submissions following Zed guidelines are accepted.

Manuscripts should be anonymized so as not to reveal the identity of the author(s). Author information should be given in a separate form accompanying the work. 

CLOSING DAY FOR SUBMISSION OF ENTRIES IS 15 September 2014

Submissions will undergo a blind, fair and unbiased, review by a panel of international judges. 

The winner of the CROP International Studies in Poverty Prize 2014 receives NOK 50.000 ($8,500).

The manuscript will be published in the CROP International Studies in Poverty series by way of Zed Books. The winner also receives 10 copies of the book.
