1. Steven C. Poe Graduate Student Paper Award
HR-ISA has named its Graduate Student Paper Award in honor of the late Steven C. Poe in recognition of his contributions in the field of human rights and support to graduate students. To be eligible for the award, the paper must be presented at the ISA annual meeting immediately preceding the deadline (not restricted to the human rights section panels), and must be original (not presented or published elsewhere) research in the field of human rights. Papers presented as posters are also eligible for the award. The award will be accompanied by $100 as well as a paid one-year membership in the Human Rights Section. In addition, the winner will receive $300 to subsidize travel to the following year's ISA meeting (contingent upon provision of receipts). Papers may be nominated by panel chairs/discussants or other conference participants, and by authors. Papers should have been uploaded to the ISA website by the deadline. Alternatively, if you are submitting your own paper for consideration, please submit it electronically to the Chair of the committee.
Award committee: two at-large members of the executive committee and one additional member (non-executive committee) chosen by the section Chair.
