The SNIS has opened the submission period for the 2016 SNIS Award, valued at CHF 5'000. The Award will be given to the best PhD thesis in international studies defended in a Swiss University during the calendar year of 2015. The SNIS considers that international studies deal not only with the analysis of international relations, but also with political, economic, social, environmental, legal and health issues that extend beyond national boundaries. Submitted PhD theses can deal with a wide range of academic disciplines, such as political science, economics, sociology and cultural anthropology, law, history, geography and environmental sciences.
Submission deadline is 20 May 2016
