The article "A Trump Effect on the EU's Popularity? The U.S. Presidential Election as a Natural Experiment", published at Perspectives on Politics and co-authored with Lara Minkus and Jan Delhey, received this year's BIGSSS Best Co-Authored Paper Award from the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences. The laudation was given by Professor Heiko Pleines. BIGSSS writes that the committee was "especially impressed with the societal relevance" and the "analytical clarity, explanatory value and empirical foundation" of the paper. The award is endowed with 500 Euros.
My article "The Spatial Structure of Transnational Human Activity", recently published in Social Science Research, received the BIGSSS Best Paper Award 2016 last Monday. The award, which is offered annually by the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences, was endowed with 500 Euros. I donated the money to Sea-Watch.org, an NGO that works hard to save refugees in distress at sea in the Mediterranean.
