The Frank Cass Prize
About the prize
Democratization is devoted to the study of the broad phenomenon of democratization – defined as the way democratic norms, institutions and practices evolve and are disseminated or retracted both within and across national and cultural boundaries. In particular, the journal aims to promote a better understanding of distinct phenomena, such as: transition to democracy and democratic installation, democratic consolidation and crisis, and deepening or weakening of democratic qualities.
The Frank Cass Prizes are awarded annually for articles that most enhance our knowledge and understanding of democratization. The value of each prize is £250. One prize is open to all contributors appearing in the relevant volume. The other prize is awarded to a young scholar or promising new scholar.
Nominations for consideration for the award are made by the editors. The judges are drawn from the Editorial Board and International Advisory Panel.
