The New Statesman and the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI) at the University of Sheffield are delighted to announce that they have joined in partnership to establish ‘The New Statesman SPERI Prize for Political Economy’.

The Prize will be awarded biennially, starting in 2014, to the scholar who has succeeded most effectively over the preceding two or three years in disseminating original and critical ideas in political economy to a wider public audience.

The members of the Prize Jury are presently being selected and will be announced in July. The Jury will prepare a short-list of 5-6 names and announce these names in September.

The first winner of the Prize will be announced in October and will deliver the New Statesman SPERI Prize Lecture in London at the Royal Institution in November. He or she will also be invited to publish an essay in the New Statesman.
