Call for Submissions Open

The submission window for the 2024 Elmar Altvater Prize is now open.

Applications are only accepted in electronic forms, to be sent before or at the very latest on March 31, 2024, to the following address:

The prize aims to encourage young scholars to continue the tradition of critical thought about the degradation and destruction of nature as the ‘price of progress’ that Professor Altvater represented so outstandingly. The prize is open to graduating thesis at the PhD level, with an award of 2,000€.

Applications are strongly encouraged from theses that adopt approaches that are inter-disciplinary, and that integrate economics with approaches from social and political sciences, and also from natural sciences, anthropology, geography, and history.
