The Centre d’études sur l’intégration et la mondialisation (CEIM, Montreal), the Fonds de dotation Open Source Intelligence on Politics (OSINTPOL, Paris) and the Groupe de recherche et d’information sur la paix et la sécurité (GRIP, Brussels) have just launched their joint “Peace and Armament” Award.
The “Peace and Armaments” Award is inspired by the seminal works of the late professor Yves Bélanger (University of Quebec in Montreal) and Jean-Paul Hébert (EHESS, Paris) in the field of defence economics, notably concerning the armaments industry.
It aims at selecting the best original analysis paper in French. The first prize is a €2,500 scholarship, which aims at encouraging the continuation of independent studies. Sponsoring organizations will eventually publish the selected paper.
The “Peace and Armaments” Award targets the armaments-related research field in terms of strategic, legal, ethical, technological, industrial, political and economic dimensions as well as the design, use and trade of conventional weapons and security systems.
The deadline to submit a paper for the 2016 edition is October 31st, 2016.
