CRISPP £500 Essay Prize 2012

Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy (CRISPP) is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2012 £500 essay prize for the best article published in volume 15 (2012) is Sylvie Loriaux for her article:Fairness in international economic cooperation: moving beyond Rawls’s duty of assistance Vol.15 Iss.1 (2012) pp. 19-39

The judges explain why this outstanding article was selected:

❝Loriaux argues that developed societies owe to their developing
counterparts a duty of assistance that goes beyond conferring minimal
levels of liberal democratic governance. In this, Loriaux makes a case
for advanced systems extending egalitarian distributive justice beyond
the domestic, and into the interstate, sphere. Loriaux calmly pushes
back against a ream of opposing theory, cleverly deploys the WTO as a
concrete test, persuasively countering the broad theory via consideration
of a particular institutional arrangement.❞
