Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research
|Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research|
|Awarded for||A very substantial and original contribution in comparative social science research|
|Presented by||International Science Council, University of Bergen and European Consortium for Political Research|
The Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research is an academic honour awarded by the International Science Council (ISC), the University of Bergen and the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR), in memory of the political scientist and sociologist Stein Rokkan (prior to the 2018 formation of the International Science Council from the merger of the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and the International Council for Science, the prize was awarded by the International Social Science Council). It is awarded to scholars making "a very substantial and original contribution in comparative social science research". These contributions can be in the form of book-length, unpublished manuscripts, published books, or collections of works published no more than two years prior to the award year. The prize is awarded annually and is worth $5000.
According to a reputation survey conducted in 2013 and 2014, the Stein Rokkan Prize is the second most prestigious international academic award in political science, after the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science. A reputation survey conducted in 2018 found the Stein Rokkan Prize to be the most prestigious interdisciplinary award in the social sciences (jointly with the Holberg Prize).
