King's Fellow wins International Studies Association book prize
King's Fellow Mira Siegelberg has been awarded the Francesco Guicciardini Prize for Best Book in Historical International Relations by the Historical IR Section of the International Studies Association. The prize was awarded for Mira's first book, Statelessness: A Modern History, published by Harvard University Press in October 2020.
The book examines how and why the problem of statelessness in the twentieth century compelled a new understanding of the international order and redefined the relationship between states and their citizens. On bestowing the prize, the award committee described the book as "a compelling, multi-layered exploration of the emergence of statelessness as a mass phenomenon during the interwar years" which "makes a forceful case for the need to reframe the way we think about refugees and stateless persons today".
