The RINUS PENNINX BEST PAPER AWARD, in honour of the founding father of IMISCOE, is an annual award for the best paper submitted to and presented at the IMISCOE annual conference. The award is sponsored by the journal Comparative Migration Studies. An anonymous review committee decides on the allocation of the award. Besides the honour of receiving the award, the prize winner also receives €750,-- and the
opportunity to publish the paper in the journal CMS.
To be eligible for the Rinus Penninx Best Paper Award, a final paper has to be uploaded on the conference portal or, alternatively, sent to the chair of your session before 26 May 2016. The panel and workshop chairs (chairs will be nominated and published at the second circular of the programme) can subsequently ‘nominate’ one paper per session for consideration for the RP Award.
