IIEL is delighted to congratulate Gregory Shaffer, Robert Wolfe and Vinhcent Le, winners of the inaugural John Jackson Prize with their article “Can Informal Law Discipline Subsidies?”
Gregory Shaffer is Chancellor’s Professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law; Robert Wolfe is Professor at Queen’s University School of Policy Studies; Vinhcent Le is a JD student at the University of California, Irvine School of Law.
The John Jackson Prize is awarded annually to the article or other contribution in the Journal of International Economic Law (JIEL) that most significantly breaks new ground and adds new insights to the study and understanding of international economic law, especially in fields beyond a self-contained analysis of WTO law. The award is named after Professor Jackson, JIEL‘s founding editor and an esteemed University Professor with a keen eye on new developments and novel systemic interactions in the field beyond the four corners of the GATT/WTO. This Prize aims at celebrating Professor Jackson’s legacy and underlining the importance of construing international economic law in this broader, ever changing perspective.
The first John Jackson Prize, for an article published in the 2015 volume (vol 18), was officially announced at the 16th WTO Conference in Geneva on June 10-11, 2016. The selection was made by a Prize Committee composed of JIEL Editors-in-Chief (Chris Brummer and Joost Pauwelyn) and further members of the JIEL Editorial Board.
The winner(s) of the Prize were awarded £750 in Oxford University Press publications.
