Political Studies is a leading international journal committed to the very highest standards of peer review that publishes academically rigorous and original work in all fields of politics and international relations. The editors encourage a pluralistic approach to political science and debate across the discipline. Political Studies aims to develop the most promising new work available and to facilitate professional communication in political science.
Each year the Political Studies Association awards a prize for the best paper published in Political Studies, named the Harrison Prize in honour of Wilfrid Harrison, who was Chair of the Association from 1963 – 1964 and the first editor of Political Studies.
This virtual issue of the journal brings together all the papers in Political Studies which have been awarded the Harrison Prize since 2006.
