JIEL John Jackson Prize
Congratulations to Gregory Shaffer, Robert Wolfe and Vinhcent Le, winners of the inaugural John Jackson Prize with their article Can Informal Law Discipline Subsidies?
The John Jackson prize is awarded annually to the article or other contribution in the JIEL that most significantly breaks new ground and adds new insights to the study and understanding of international economic law, especially in fields beyond a self-contained analysis of WTO law.
Professor Jackson was not only the founding editor of the JIEL , he also had a keen eye on new developments and novel systemic interactions in the field beyond the four corners of the GATT/WTO. This Prize aims at celebrating the legacy of John Jackson and underlining the importance of construing international economic law in this broader, ever changing perspective.
The first John Jackson Prize, for an article published in the 2015 volume (vol 18), will be announced at the 16th WTO conference in Geneva in June. The selection was made by a Prize Committee composed of the Editors-in-Chief (Chris Brummer and Joost Pauwelyn) and further members of the Editorial Board of JIEL .
The winner of the Prize will be awarded £750 in OUP books.
