Today, Erica Chenoweth is awarded the Karl Deutsch Award by the International Studies Association. The award was established in 1981 to recognize scholars in IR under age 40, or within ten years of defending their dissertation, and is presented annually to a scholar who is judged to have made (through a body of publications) the most significant contribution to the study of International Relations and Peace Research.
Erica Chenoweth is celebrated as one of the 100 leading global thinkers in 2013 by Foreign Policy Magazine. Among the achievements highlighted by the magazine is the release of the nonviolence dataset NAVCO 2.0 in the special issue of Journal of Peace Research on Nonviolence. Erica was Co-Editor of this special issue, and she is Associate Researcher at PRIO.
Non-violent resistance brings about political change much more effectively than the use of violence, say the two scholars, Erica Chenoweth and Maria Stephan, who have won the 2013 University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order.
Erica Chenoweth is an Associate Senior Researcher at PRIO's Centre for the Study of Civil War. She will be lecturing in an upcoming course on civil resistance at PRIO 12-14 May 2013.
