The Kooiman Prize

Public Management Review

About the prize

The Kooiman Prize is awarded each year for the Best Paper published in the previous year in Public Management Review (PMR). The prize is decided through a nomination and voting process across the full Editorial Board of the journal. The Prize is announced and awarded at the Gala Dinner of the annual conference of the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM) – the top three papers are announced.

The prize has been awarded since the first year of the journal (1999) – its first recipient was Professor Jan Kooiman of Erasmus University for a ground-breaking paper on governance. Several years later, upon the retirement of Professor Kooiman, the prize was renamed the Kooiman Prize in recognition both of the contribution of Jan Kooiman to the field of public management and of his support for, and contribution to, the development of PMR. The prize is supported by Routledge with the winner receiving a voucher for books from the entire Taylor & Francis catalogue.
