The Mattei Dogan Foundation Prize in European Political Sociology is awarded for a major contribution to the advancement of political sociology by a jury composed of four members of the ECPR Executive Committee.
The $3,000 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.
The prize was first bestowed in 2007 and is presented every other year at the ECPR General Conference. Nominations for the 2019 prize are now closed.
