  2. Topical issues with a discussion of policy implications;
  3. Focus on development (i.e., how to ensure that international investment and multinational enterprises contribute to sustainable development).

The paper must not have been previously published. Co-authorship is permitted provided all authors meet the stated conditions.

Submissions must include:

  1. Paper not exceeding 12,000 words (inclusive of appendices, references, and all material); and must follow the Transnational Corporations guidelines;
  2. Author(s)’s CV and;
  3. Abstract (not longer than 300 words).

The submitted papers will be evaluated by a Review Panel including DIAE leaders and experts, as well as eminent external scholars, including members of AIB.

The Award, granted on an annual basis, will be presented during a Special Session that will take place during the AIB 2023 Annual Conference scheduled from 5-9 July 2023 in Warsaw. Finalists will be required to present their work during this Special Session, and the winner will be announced at the end of the session. Finalists must agree to register and present their work in person at the conference.
