The Gregory Kavka/University of California, Irvine Prize in Political Philosophy is awarded to a member of the APA 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.
The winner receives $500. In addition, a symposium in honor of the recipient of the Kavka Prize is held at the APA Pacific Division Meeting in the year of the award. The symposium will include panelists commenting upon the ideas of the selected paper, followed by a response from the award winner.
Nominations of papers published between January 1, 2014, and December 31, 2015, are encouraged from journal editors, authors, and colleagues. The nomination deadline is May 31, 2016. To submit a nomination, fill out the nomination form.
