Professor Ian McAllister, from the ANU School of Politics and International Relations, along with Russell Dalton and David Farrell, has received the GESIS Klingemann Prize for the Best Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES) for their book Political parties and democratic linkage: How parties organize democracy.
The GESIS Klingemann Prize for the Best CSES Scholarship is awarded for the best CSES scholarship (paper, book, dissertation, or other scholarly work, broadly defined) published or finalized in the calendar year prior to the award. The prize is named in honor of Professor Doctor Hans-Dieter Klingemann, an internationally renowned political scientist, major contributor to comparative research, and co-founder of the CSES project.
This year's award ceremony will be held at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Political Science Association in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.
