Dear RCSL members,
I’m writing to draw your attention to this year’s call for nominations for the Senior Podgórecki Prize Podgòrecki Prize 2013. This is awarded, as I’m sure you know, every second year to a leading socio-legal scholar for distinguished and outstanding lifetime achievements. The Prize was established in 2004, to honour the memory of Adam Podgòrecki, the founding father of RCSL and a leading figure within the international sociological community. Past recipients have been 2011: David Nelken ( Italy), 2009: Boaventura de Sousa Santos (Portugal), 2007: Richard Abel (USA) and Vincenzo Ferrari (Italy), 2005: Erhard Blankenburg (The Netherlands).
Should you know of a distinguished socio-legal scholar whose work ought to be recognized in this way, please don’t hesitate to secure a copy of their current CV, and to identify two members of RCSL who would be willing to write a letter of support. Needless to say, there might be a need for some encouragement, since the deadline for receipt of nominations is 19 April.
The Prize Committee, as well as the RCSL Board, would place a high value on your contribution to the process: as RCSL members and committed socio-legal scholars, you are well placed to be able to identify worthy nominees for this important prize. We look forward to your suggestions and the emergence of a strong field of candidates for this flagship prize awarded by the RCSL.
With warm regards,
Robert van Krieken
