Jacob Shapiro, associate professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, has been named winner of the 2016 Karl Deutsch Award by the International Studies Association.

Named for Karl Deutsch, this award was established in 1981 to recognize scholars in international relations under age 40, or within ten years of defending their dissertation.

Shapiro, who is co-director of the Empirical Studies of Conflict Project, studies political violence, economic and political development in conflict zones, security policy and urban conflict. His research has been published or is forthcoming in a broad range of academic and policy journals including American Journal of Political Science, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, International Organization, International Security, Journal of Political Economy and World Politics.
