The Independent Social Research Foundation and the Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour awarded the 2014 ISRF Essay Prize in Social Theory to Professor Kenneth J Gergen (Swarthmore College) for his essay From Mirroring to World-Making: Research as Future Forming .
Prize-winning essays in Arts and Social Sciences were announced this week as the results of the Cheney Prize were revealed.
The views expressed in the essays are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the Treasury or the Australian Government.
NELA is pleased to announce Ms Madeleine Figg, from the University of Tasmania Law School, is the winner of the 2013 NELA Essay Competition. Her essay on 'Protecting Third Party Rights of Appeal, Protecting the Environment: A Tasmanian Case Study' impressed the judges as a fresh look at the issue, highlighting their importance in achieving better outcomes for the environment even though the majority deal with private interests.
Madeleine has won a cash prize and a year's free membership of NELA for her efforts and NELA is liaising with the editor of the prestigious Environment and Planning Law Journal to have the essay published.
The judges also commended Isabelle Whitehead’s essay on the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act's water trigger, which posed the question whether the water trigger was ‘Better Protection or Pure Politics?’
Congratulations to Madeleine and Isabelle!
