Professor Rod Rhodes of the Department of Politics & International Relations, University of Southampton, has been awarded a Special Recognition Award by the UK Political Studies Association. The award was the unanimous choice of a jury of distinguished academics and journalists who met recently at Westminster. The jurors agreed that Rod’s contribution to political science has been outstanding and increased enormously understanding of how government works and done much to raise the esteem of the discipline. The award was presented by Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty (The National Council for Civil Liberties) at the recent Political Studies Association Annual Conference in Manchester.
