ICAS Best Article Prize On Global Hong Kong Studies

SHKS organises and sponsors the newest addition to the International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS) Book Prize family: the IBP for Best Article on Global Hong Kong Studies. The award is held bi-annually starting in 2021.

ICAS is a global immersive platform enabling individuals and institutions from all over the world to come together to exchange views on a variety of issues pertaining to Asia. Since 1997, ICAS has brought more than 20,000 scholars, civil society representatives, practitioners and artists together at 11 conventions. Publishers, institutes and NGOs converge to display their products, services, and research outcomes in the ICAS exhibition hall.

Call for submission is usually announced in November or December. And the deadline for submission is usually in January each year.
