Please consider submitting your work or nominating someone else’s work for the WILIG Scholarship Prize by June 15, 2022. The WILIG Scholarship Prize, awarded every other year, highlights and promotes excellence in international law scholarship involving women and girls, gender, and feminist approaches. It recognizes innovative contributions to international law scholarship that theorize or utilize a feminist lens or lenses, highlight and seek to address topics disproportionately affecting women and girls, or consider the impact of international law or policy on gender more broadly. The first WILIG Scholarship Prize was awarded in 2021 to Irini Papanicolopulu, for Gender and the Law of the Sea (Brill Nijhoff, 2019).
The WILIG Scholarship Prize Committee for 2022-2023, is composed of WILIG Co-Chair Yvonne Dutton (Indiana – McKinney School of Law), Laurence Boisson de Chazournes (University of Geneva), MJ Durkee (Georgia), Chiara Giorgetti (Richmond), Alexandra Huneeus (Wisconsin). The Committee may award up to two prizes: one for book length monographs or edited volumes, and the other for individual articles or book chapters. Nominators may only nominate one book or article per cycle, and it must have been published in the last three years. Self-nominations are welcome. Please note that only members of ASIL/WILIG are eligible to receive the prize.
To submit an article, chapter, or book published in the last three years for consideration, please send the relevant scholarly work, along with a cover letter describing why the work merits the award in light of the criteria above, to email@example.com by June 15. The prize will be awarded at ASIL’s 2023 Annual Meeting.
