Tarik Abou-Chadi, Associate Professor in European Union and Comparative Politics, has been announced as joint winner of the 2022 Henrik Enderlein Prize.
The Franco-German research prize honours outstanding researchers under the age of 40 whose work contributes to the future of Europe.
The award was jointly established at the beginning of 2022 by the Hertie School, Sciences Po Paris, the German Federal Foreign Office and the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs.
Tarik was announced as joint winner with Stefanie Stantcheva, Professor of Political Economy at Harvard University.
The award’s jury was convinced by the academic excellence and high practical relevance of their respective research.
In their work, Tarik and Stefanie ‘advocate for evidence-based decision-making to develop policy for the common good and to stimulate public debates’, the jury said.
Tarik said: “Only few names in Europe are associated as much with building bridges between academia and politics as Henrik's.
“It's a great honour to receive this award in his memory. It encourages me to continue to participate in the political debate and to take a stand.”
Tarik’s research has appeared in leading political science journals such as the American Political Science Review, World Politics, and the British Journal of Political Science.
He is currently working on a book with Markus Wagner (University of Vienna) that explains the variation in support for social democratic parties in Western Europe.
The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday evening at the French Foreign Ministry on the Quai d'Orsay in Paris.
