The ScienceCampus and the Department for Interdisciplinary and Multiscalar Area Studies (DIMAS) at UR are pleased to anounce the lanuch of the fourth edition of the Prize for Outstanding Master's Theses in Area Studies at UR. The prize promotes the development of research and teaching with relevance to area studies in the fields of social sciences, humanities, theology, law and economics. It was awarded for the first time in 2020 and demonstrates the value of the close cooperation between the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) and UR.

The thesis or final paper must have been submitted in the last three semesters (summer semester 2022, winter semester 2023/23 or summer semester 2023) at UR.

Historisches Gedenken im zivilgesellschaftlichen Projekt Poslednij Adres”), winners of prizes in 2020, have published texts there.
