Second Annual Amartya Sen Prize Contest. The Yale Global Justice Program, Global Financial Integrity, and Academics Stand Against Poverty
The Yale Global Justice Program, Global Financial Integrity, and Academics Stand Against Poverty invite submissions of original essays of ca. 7,000 to 9,000 words on the intelligent use of incentives toward curtailing corporations’ use of tax evasion and avoidance, abusive transfer pricing and all forms of illicit financial flows. All prizes are named in honor of Amartya Sen, whose work has shown how the rigor of economic thinking can be brought to bear on normative and practical questions of great human significance.
The best entries will be presented at an international conference in the fall of 2015 at Yale University and subsequently published in a special issue of a prominent journal. In addition, at least two of the winning essays will receive a monetary award: a first prize of $5,000 and a second prize of $3,000. Professor Sen hopes to join us for the conference presentations.
Entries can be e-mailed to Chelsea Papa at email@example.com by August 31, 2015. We ask that entries be anonymized to facilitate blind refereeing. Winners will be selected by an expert jury, whose decisions are final.
