The Mattei Dogan Foundation Prize in European Political Sociology is awarded by
the ECPR for a major contribution to the advancement of political sociology by a
jury composed of four members of the ECPR Executive Committee. The prize is presented
to either a scholar with an ensemble of outstanding scientific publications and
constructive professional achievements or a coherent team of several researchers
enjoying a high reputation in the international community of political sociologists.

(CNRS) following a distinguished international career teaching and researching in
political sociology. The award he founded was first bestowed in 2007 and is presented
every other year at the ECPR General Conference. The award for this prize is US$3,000.
