Justice and Reconciliation in World Politics wins Yale H. Ferguson Award
The International Studies Association-Northeast 2018 Yale H. Ferguson Award has been given to Catherine Lu in recognition of her Press-published book, Justice and Reconciliation in World Politics.
The Yale H. Ferguson Award is given annually to the book that most advances the vibrancy of international studies as a pluralist discipline.
Out of the 28 nominations received this year, the prize committee unanimously decided to award Lu, noting: “Justice and Reconciliation is a remarkable scholarly achievement. The book takes seriously the challenge of working through a complex field of contested terms and concepts (‘justice,’ ‘reconciliation,’ etc.), but without subjecting them to depoliticizing, once-and-for-all characterizations, or removing them from their generative historical contexts.”
Justice and Reconciliation in World Politics has previously received the APSA International History and Politics Section Robert L. Jervis and Paul W. Schroeder Best Book Award as well as the University of Sussex Centre for Advanced International Theory (CAIT) Theory Prize.
Press-published titles also won this award in 2015. Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International InterventionI by Severine Autesserre and Global Shell Games: Experiments in Transnational Relations, Crime, and Terrorism by Michael G. Findley, Daniel L. Nielson and J.C. Sharman were jointly presented with the prize.
