It is our pleasure to introduce the winner of the Els Witte annual prize for outstanding PhD thesis in Political Science for 2021.
The jury has decided to award the prize to Thomas Jacobs (Ghent University). The theoretical approach stood out as very original and the thesis’ empirical analysis was highly convincing. The jury was impressed by the open access of the data which they felt was a ‘best practice’ methodologically.
Once again, congratulations, Thomas!
