David Marsden Network G Best Paper Prize

The David Marsden Best Paper Prize was created in commemoration of Professor David Marsden who founded and coordinated the Network.  The $500 prize is funded by the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics. The Jury committee looks for papers that address substantive questions and issues related to Network G: Labor Markets, Education and Human Resources, and that reflect David Marsden’s unique capacity to foster theory-driven research, to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue, and to encourage an international perspective even when focused on a single national or sectoral case. Early career researchers are especially encouraged to submit papers for consideration. The award is made annually as part of the SASE annual meeting. The Jury is chosen bi-annually to reflect the cross-disciplinary, international and methodologically plural profile of Network G.
