The prize is awarded to a specialist group whose activities within their specialism have raised awareness of the study of politics and increased the ‘impact’ of the discipline as a whole. The judging panel noted that while research impact is a relatively recent preoccupation in political science, the members of the Women & Politics group have been engaging in impact activities for decades.

The ceremony took place in Manchester’s historic Town Hall at the annual PSA conference in April. Dr. Kenny, along with previous convenors Dr. Elizabeth Evans (Bristol) & Dr. Kristi Winters (GESIS), received the prize from Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty and PSA President Professor Charlie Jeffery.
