Michael Pugh Prize
About the prize
Beginning in 2017, International Peacekeeping will award the Michael Pugh Prize annually to the author of an outstanding article published in the journal across the previous year (2016). The prize is £200 of Routledge books.
The award is named for Professor Michael Pugh, Emeritus Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Bradford. Professor Pugh was the lead founding editor of International Peacekeeping when the journal was established in 1994. In his scholarly work Professor Pugh has consistently expanded the study of peacekeeping, to include applying critical approaches to peacekeeping (‘Peacekeeping and Critical Theory’, 2004), analysing the political economy of peace operations (Whose Peace? Critical Perspectives on the Political Economy of Peacebuilding, 2011, co-edited with Neil Cooper and Mandy Turner) as well as researching maritime peacekeeping.
Professor Pugh retired as Editor of International Peacekeeping in 2011.
