Political Science Professor Ran Hirschl has won a coveted Alexander von Humboldt International Research Award (3.5 million Euros for a five-year term), Germany’s most generous research prize. It is aimed at attracting top scholars in all disciplines to conduct research in Germany. The selection committee describes Hirschl as ‘one of the world’s leading scholars of comparative constitutionalism’. This year’s four other winners come from the University of Chicago, Cornell, Harvard and Tsinghua University (China).
