Local Government Studies Prizes
Local Government Studies
About the prize
Local Government Studies awards two prizes every year, the John Stewart Prize for Best Article and the George Jones Prize (Early Stage Career Researcher).
The names of the two prizes were chosen to remind today’s local government scholars of two of the subject’s pioneers: Professor John Stewart of the University of Birmingham and Professor George Jones of the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The John Stewart Prize and George Jones Prize prize are awarded annually following a rigorous process of review by members of the Local Government Studies editorial board.
These acclaimed papers have been made free to access, so just click the below links to enjoy award-winning research.
