JEREMY WEINSTEIN, associate professor of political science and a senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, has received the Karl Deutsch Award from the International Studies Association.

The award recognizes scholars younger than 40—or within 10 years of defending their dissertation—who have made the most significant contributions to the study of international relations and peace research.

Weinstein, 37, focuses his research on civil wars and political violence; ethnic politics and the political economy of development; and democracy, accountability and political change. He is the Ford Dorsey Director of Stanford’s Center for African Studies and is also an affiliated faculty member at the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law and the Center for International Security and Cooperation.

Other Stanford researchers who have received the award include MICHAEL TOMZ (2011), KENNETH SCHULTZ (2003) and JAMES FEARON (1999).
