CPS now organizes for the tenth time the CPS prize for the best Dutch thesis. After nine successful editions, this year we organize this annual competition for the best Dutch-language thesis for the academic year 2019-2020 (master’s thesis, bachelor’s thesis or a written assignment that qualitatively stands up to comparison with a thesis) on themes relevant at the crossroads of security and society. All subjects that relate to the broad field of security are eligible.
The prize consists of a cash prize of 500 euros, donated by CPS and the publication of the thesis in book form (published by Vanden Broele Publishers). It is also possible that the thesis will be integrated at a CPS conference if this fits in with the theme setting. Moreover, the nominated works can be published in the form of an article in the digital platform Blue Connect.
