Best Conference paper prize

Each year, a prize is awarded for the best paper presented at the previous PSAI Annual Conference.

The paper must be original, unpublished and presented by the candidate(s) at the conference.

The paper must be outstanding and worthy of publication in a leading political science journal.  Panel conveners, chairs and paper givers can nominate outstanding papers for this prize.

The 2017 Best Conference paper prize was awarded to Dr. Liam Weeks, UCC, and Dr. Mícheál O Fathartaigh (Dublin Business School)  for their paper ‘A quantitative analysis of the Dáil Debates on the 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty’, presented at the 2016 conference.

Liam Weeks receives the 2017 prize for Best Conference Paper from former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and PSAI president Muiris MacCarthaigh
