Lukas Haffert Awarded Körber Foundation Prize

Lukas Haffert has received second prize of the Körber Foundation's German Thesis Award in Social Science (Deutscher Studienpreis). In his thesis he analyses countries with budget surpluses and shows that even these are unable to stop the increasing erosion of a state's capacity to govern effectively. The prize ceremony is to take place on November 26, 2015, in Berlin. Each year, the Körber Foundation awards prizes totaling more than euros 100,000 to the best young researchers across every discipline. Lukas Haffert was a doctoral student from 2010-2014 at the MPIfG and is now a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Political Science at the University of Zurich. Press release
