The prize is to be awarded for the best paper in a refereed journal, or an original book chapter or original essay published in a collection with a multiplicity of contributors, in the field of political philosophy, broadly understood.
Papers from any area of political philosophy and political theory are welcome, including, but not limited to, the history of political philosophy, rational choice theory with implications drawn for political philosophy, and moral theory/applied ethics in which direct links are made to political philosophy or public policy. Papers for the spring 2015 award are eligible if they were published for the first time (not reprinted) between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013.
The amount of the prize is $500. A symposium in honor of the recipient of the Kavka Prize will be scheduled at the Pacific Division Meeting, to include panelists commenting upon the ideas of the selected paper, followed by a response from the award winner. The author must be a member in good standing of the APA.
