Local Government Studies prizes 2018

About the prize

Local Government Studies offers two annual prizes for articles published in the journal: the John Steward Prize for the best article published in LGS in the previous year; and the George Jones prize for an article by an early stage career researcher published by the journal in the same year. The winning articles are chosen by a panel of members of the LGS Editorial Board.


The John Stewart prize for 2018 has been awarded to:

The planners’ dream goes wrong. Questioning citizen-centred planning’ by Alex Lord, Michael Mair, John Sturzaker and Paul Jones, of the University of Liverpool, UK.


The George Jones prize for 2018 has been awarded to:

Big change, little change? Punctuation, increments and multi-layer institutional change for English local authorities under austerity’ by Alison Gardner of the University of Nottingham, UK.

We're delighted to offer free access to the LGS prize-winning articles.
