The biennial ‘Luigi Bobbio’ Prize is awarded to the best paper based on original field research presented at the SISP Conferences of the two preceding years by at least one SISP member, without age or career level limitations for the authors. Papers presented at the Conference without any of the authors being a SISP member are excluded from participation.
In the event that at least one of the authors has applied for SISP membership in the months preceding the conference in which the paper was presented, and the application has not yet been ratified by the Assembly, the participation request is considered admissible.
Nomination procedure: The Section Chairs of the two previous SISP Conferences are required to provide written nominations for up to a maximum of 3 papers presented within the panels organized within their Section (also based on the recommendations received from Panel Chairs, discussants and any self-nominations). In case of failure to make a nomination, Section Chairs are required to briefly explain the reasons.
Amount of the prize (total for each single paper): €500.00
