RC27 LogoCharles H. Levine

Every year, IPSA’s Research Committee 27 - Structure and Organization of Government (SOG), sponsor of the journal Governance, awards the Levine Prize. The Prize is awarded to a book that makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration, takes an explicitly comparative perspective, and is written in an accessible style.  It is named in honor of Charles H. Levine, who was an accomplished member of the Research Committee and served on the editorial board of Governance. The prize is awarded on the recommendation of a distinguished committee.

 

The book selected should meet the following criteria:

  1. It makes a contribution of considerable theoretical or practical significance in the field of public policy and administration.
  2. It takes an explicitly comparative perspective or produces findings the implications of which ware highly significant for comparative research.
  3. It is written in an accessible style and form so that it is of value both to scholars and practitioners.

The Levine Prize will be awarded to the book published in the previous year that that best meets these criteria.
