CAPPP Director Professor Joel D. Aberbach Receives IPSA SOG Kloeti Award

CAPPP Director Professor Joel D. Aberbach and colleague Per Laegreid of the University of Bergen received the Ulrich Kloeti award at a June workshop of the International Political Science Association’s Committee on the Structure and Organization of Government (IPSA SOG).

The award is presented annually “for exceptional contributions to research in the field through a sustained career. Awardees must have involved themselves significantly within SOG, both with respect to research and leadership.”

In addition to serving on the governing board of SOG and the editorial board of SOG’s journal, Governance, Aberbach served as chair of the committee for more than 20 years.

Aberbach and Laegreid received their awards at SOG’s recent workshop on “Public Management and Institutional Quality” in Gothenburg, Sweden. The event was co-sponsored by the Quality of Government Institute at the University of Gothenburg.

The award was established in 2009 to honor the memory of Ulrich Kloeti, a founding member of the Committee.
