Assistant Professor Didac Queralt has won his fourth award for his book Pawned States: State Building in the Era of International Finance (Princeton University Press, 2022).

The Georgetown University Lepgold Book Prize honors Joseph S. Lepgold, a Georgetown University Government and School of Foreign Service professor who died in a tragic hotel fire in Paris in December 2001. The prize honors exceptional contributions to the study of international relations, with particular emphasis on the resolution of critical policy challenges, published each calendar year.

The prize awards $1,000 to the author of the best book in international relations, broadly conceived, each year. To receive the award, the winning author agrees to give a lecture on his or her scholarship at the Mortara Center.

Didac Queralt will discuss his research at this year’s Lepgold Book Prize Award and Lecture at the Mortara Center on November 30, 2023.
