Congratulations to PIR PhD graduate Rosalind Cavaghan who is winner of the first ECPR award for the best doctoral thesis on politics and gender.

The international panel of judges ( pictured above with Rosalind in centre) was impressed by Rosalind’s outstanding PhD on gender mainstreaming in the European Commission. The PhD prize is awarded by the Gender Politics Standing Group of the European Consortium of Political Research  - Europe’s leading professional political science association - and was presented last week at the European Conference on Politics and Gender in Barcelona.

Rosalind received her doctorate from University of Edinburgh in 2012 and was supervised by Dr Richard Freeman and Prof Fiona Mackay. She will shortly take up a prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship at Radboud University in the Netherlands, working with Prof Mieke Verloo.
