Announcing IR15 Best Student Paper Award

by | Aug 14, 2014 | Awards, Conferences

The IR15 Conference Committee is pleased to announce that this year’s Best Student Paper award goes to Rodrigo Davies from MIT for his paper “Three Provocations for Civic Crowdfunding.” Davies’ paper takes a thoughtful approach to considering crowdfunding strategies and their implications for civic and political participation. The reviewers appreciated the way the paper advances our ways of understanding crowdfunding rather than merely rehashing old debates.

We had many high quality student submissions this year. Congratulations to Davies and all our student authors. We look forward to seeing your paper presentations in Korea in October.
