SNIS Award 2011 for the Best Thesis in International Studies

The SNIS launches the 2011 edition of the SNIS Award, valued at CHF 5'000. The Award will be allotted for the best PhD thesis in International Studies submitted in a Swiss University in 2011.


Submitted PhD theses can deal with a wide range of academic disciplines, such as political science, economics, sociology, social and cultural anthropology, law, history, geography, environmental sciences, and related areas. In fact, the SNIS considers that International Studies deal not only with the analysis of international relations, but with phenomena that transcend traditional national-state boundaries and which may be addressed by a large spectrum of academic disciplines.
A jury composed of experts in their field of competence will evaluate the PhD thesis submitted. A thesis that can convince the jury beyond disciplinary boundaries is a clear asset.
