by Adam David Morton on June 5, 2015

Following the launch of The Australian International Political Economy Network (AIPEN) — Richard Higgott Journal Article Prize, it is with great pleasure that the longlist of articles can now be circulated.

To recap, the Prize will be awarded to the best article published in IPE as deemed by a selection committee of IPE scholars (consisting of Penny Griffin, Shahar Hameiri, Adam Morton, Jason Sharman, and Jacqui True) with the award given to any article in IPE, understood in a pluralist sense to include the political economy of security, geography, literature, sociology, anthropology, post-coloniality, gender, finance, trade, regional studies or economic theory.

Before that decision can be made, we now require AIPEN members to vote on the longlist to establish the final shortlist of articles for deliberation. The voting will proceed as follows:

  • Voting is open from 3 June to 3 August, the latter closing at 3:00pm;
  • Nominated candidates are permitted to vote for themselves but voters must be members of AIPEN, which only requires subscription to the listserv at no cost;
  • Voting should take the form of three choices indicating a first, second and third preference (in rank order) with the first ranked choice receiving 5 points; the second ranked choice receiving 3 points; and the third ranked choice receiving 1 point;
  • Votes should be sent to Adam Morton:
