The Sakıp Sabancı International Research Awards involves a Jury Prize that will be awarded to an individual who has made distinguished contributions on the above-mentioned theme. In addition to the Jury Prize, Essay Awards will be given to three researchers under 45 years of age. An independent and international jury will select the Essay Award and Jury Prize awardees.
Globalization has transformed the relations between state, market, and society. At the turn of the century, protests, and movements against the financial and trade institutions of globalization have led scholars to study its broken promises, its winners and losers and the growing discontent. Twenty years forward, we are facing a backlash against globalization beyond its economic dimension. Withdrawals from international and regional institutions, electoral successes of nationalist leaders, anti-immigrant sentiments are the new manifestations of this backlash against political and social globalization.
Yet, we do live in a world of states. The pandemic has once again revitalized this ongoing debate on whether globalization is in retreat and whether we are witnessing the comeback of the state. If so, what kind of a state? The complexities of the modern world have arguably made the structure and capabilities of the state ever more consequential for its society as well as the broader international society. Emergence of a truly multipolar world and the alternative models of state capitalism under authoritarian governments also call into question what kind of future awaits the globalization phenomenon.
Essays that address such topics are welcome.
The Sakıp Sabancı International Research Awards involve a Jury Prize of 25,000 USD. The Jury Prize will be presented to an individual who has made distinguished contributions to the above-mentioned theme. An independent and international jury will select the Awardee. The essay award includes 10,000 USD for each of the three award-winning essays selected by the same jury from among submitted essays.
The deadline for the submissions is January 14, 2022.
