1st Jost Delbrück Prize for the International Law of Peace and Conflict

In commemoration of its long-time former director, the Walther Schücking Institute for International Law at Kiel University is offering the Jost Delbrück Prize once every two years since 2020. As a prize for young scholars, it is honouring outstanding doctoral theses in the field of international law of peace and conflict that have been completed at universities or research institutions in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland.
The prize is endowed with 1,000 € and is intended to recognise a doctoral thesis that stands out for its high academic quality, originality, and contribution to academic discourse in the field of international law of peace and conflict. The doctoral thesis may be written in either German or English.

Members of the German Society for International Law (DGIR) are eligible to submit proposals for the award of the prize. The selection is made by a jury including the directors of the Walther Schücking Institute. The conferment of the 1st Jost Delbrück Prize (awarded in retrospect of the year 2020) will take place during an academic memorial event for Jost Delbrück (1935-2020) on 19 November 2021 in Kiel. For the Jost Delbrück Prize 2020, doctoral theses that have been published or accepted for publication in 2019 or 2020 were considered.
