Critical Policy Studies Prize Winning Papers Critical Policy Studies

Critical Policy Studies

Each year Critical Policy Studies offers the Herbert Gottweis Prize for the overall best article published in CPS in the previous year, and the CPS prize for an article by an early stage career researcher. The winning articles are chosen by a panel of members of the CPS Editorial Board.

In 2018, the CPS Prize for an article by an early stage career researcher was awarded to Riane Dekker for ‘Frame ambiguity in policy controversies: critical frame analysis of migrant integration policies in Antwerp and Rotterdam’ in CPS 11.2. Riane has defended her Phd thesis in 2016 and is now working as an assistant professor at the Utrecht University School of Governance.

The Herbert Gottweis Prize for an article by an established scholar went to Natalie Papanastasiou for ‘How does scale mean? A critical approach to scale in the study of policy”’ in CPS 11.1. Natalie is a postdoctoral researcher funded by a research grant awarded by the Leverhulme Trust.


The judges composed of editorial board members Holger Strassheim, Paul Stubbs, and Piyapong Boossabong.
