About the Levine Prize
Each year, the International Political Science Association’s Research Committee on the Structure and Organization of Government (SOG), sponsor of the journal Governance, awards the Levine Prize. The Prize is awarded to a book that makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration, takes an explicitly comparative perspective, and is written in an accessible style. It is named in honor of Charles H. Levine, who was an accomplished member of the Research Committee and served on the editorial board of Governance. The prize is awarded on the recommendation of a distinguished committee.
Call for nominations: 2015 Levine Prize
Charles H. Levine was an outstanding scholar in the fields of public policy and administration. He played a major role in the creation and early life of both this journal and its owner, the Structure and Organization of Government Research Committee of the International Political Science Association (SOG). After his untimely death in 1988, the Editorial Board of Governance and the Executive Committee of SOG established an annual book prize in his memory.
The book selected should meet the following criteria:
- It makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration.
- It takes an explicitly comparative perspective or produces findings the implications of which are highly significant for comparative research.
The Levine Prize will be awarded to the book published in 2014 that best meets these criteria. Nominations should be made by 31 March 2015 and sent to the committee. Please send a copy of the book to all three members of the committee. The winner will be announced in the October 2015 issue of Governance. Note: Please ensure that books being nominated will reach all three members of the committee BY 31 MARCH 2015.
