In September 1994, the European Group of Public Law (EGPL), the European Scientific Council of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), took the decision to establish the doctoral / postdoctoral “Thesis Prize” to be awarded, on an annual basis, to the best doctoral or postdoctoral public law thesis characterized by its European dimension.
The winner, selected by an ad hoc Committee by Members of the European Group of Public Law, is invited to present his/her ideas and rationale (as expressed in the thesis) at the EGPL Annual Reunion (held every September in Greece). Furthermore, the winner is given the opportunity to publish an article based on his/her thesis in the “European Review of Public Law” a high profile periodical edition of the EPLO.
During this year’s conference, the Group members will grant the Thesis Prize for 2015.
