Lepgold Book Prize
The Georgetown University Lepgold Book Prize honors Joseph S. Lepgold, a Georgetown University Government and School of Foreign Service professor who died in a tragic hotel fire in Paris in December 2001. The prize honors exceptional contributions to the study of international relations, with particular emphasis on the resolution of critical policy challenges, published each calendar year.
The prize awards $1,000 to the author of the best book in international relations, broadly conceived, each year. To receive the award, the winning author agrees to give a lecture on his or her scholarship at the Mortara Center. Recent winners of the prize include Patrick J. McDonald’s The Invisible Hand of Peace, John Owen’s The Clash of Ideas in World Politics, and Giacomo Chiozza and H.E. Goemans’ Leaders and International Conflict.
The submission period for 2019 has concluded.
