Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science

"The Skytte Foundation at Uppsala University has established an annual prize, The Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science, of 500 000 Swedish crowns (approximately 70 000 US Dollars) to the scholar who in the view of the Foundation has made the most valuable contribution to political science.

"Research in all areas of the discipline will be considered: political theory, comparative politics, public administration and international relations.

"The Prize will be awarded every year at a solemn ceremony in Uppsala the Saturday closest to October 1, the day when the donation was given. The laureate will be chosen by the Foundation on the recommendation of a Prize Committee after international nominations." [1]
