Pippa Norris, Paul. F. McGuire Lecturer in Comparative Politics, is this year’s recipient of the esteemed International Political Science Association (IPSA) Karl Deutsch Award.
“This is a tremendous and unexpected honor,” writes Norris.
The IPSA explains the purpose of the Karl Deutsch Award is to honor a prominent scholar engaged in the cross-disciplinary research of which Karl Deutsch was a master. Born in Prague, Karl Deutsch immigrated to the U.S. in the late 1930s and later taught at Harvard, MIT, and Yale. He assumed the role of President of IPSA from 1976-79.
Norris is a political scientist focusing on democracy and development, public opinion and elections, political communications, and gender politics. She directs The Electoral Integrity Project, a six year research project with a team based in Sydney and at Harvard.
As the award winner, Norris will present the Karl Deutsch lecture or lead a special session at the IPSA World Congress of Political Science in Montreal, Canada on July 23rd. The award is made on the recommendation of the Committee on Awards and is supported by the Karl Deutsch fund.
