Jon Elster Symposium
The Academy's prize for outstanding research in the humanities and social sciences (The Stefi and Lars Fylkesaker prize) was in 2019 awarded to Jon Elster, Professor of Political Science at Columbia, New York. Elster was awarded the prize for "his outstanding contributions in the fields of philosophy and social sciences".
This symposium will bring together a group of international scholars from different fields of science, to celebrate the career of Elster, as one of the most influential political scientists of his time. Invitations will be sent out in November.
