Prize for Best Article

Regional and Federal Studies

Every year since 2017, Regional & Federal Studies has awarded the "Best Article Prize" for an article published the preceding year. Four to five articles are nominated by the Editorial Board. The journal's Advisory Board then votes to decide on the best article of the year. Each Advisory Board member has one single vote. The article with most votes is awarded the Best Article Prize, which comes with a cash award of £400 GBP.

The winning article and nominees of 2018 are free to access until 31 December 2019.

Regional & Federal Studies

From the European integration process to processes of decentralisation in the developing world, from post-conflict federal power-sharing arrangements to minority nationalist movements and the spatial rescaling of public policy, the study of federalism and territorial politics now covers a wide variety of topics dealing with divided political authority and levels of government.
