2018 Mildred A. Schwartz Award
The Canadian Politics Section of the American Political Science Association is pleased to announce the selection of André Blais as the 2018 recipient of the Mildred A. Schwartz Lifetime Achievement Award.
The award annually recognizes a scholar who has made significant contributions through their career to the study of Canadian politics, either through development of political analysis of Canada or through incorporating Canada as a significant case in comparative political analyses.
Professor Blais is the University Research Chair in Electoral Studies at the Université de Montréal.
Professor Blais' research and publications have established important networks linking Canada to the international political science community, as well as encouraging the study of Canada as an important case within the comparative study of electoral politics and election systems. His research has led to breakthroughs in many areas of Canadian politics and comparative politics: political participation, public opinion, voting behaviour, electoral campaigns, democratic accountability, electoral systems, the impact of institutions, and public policy. He is also at the forefront of the use of experimental methods in political science.
There will be a presentation ceremony for the award at the 2018 APSA Annual Meeting, August 30 – September 2, in Boston, during the Canadian Politics Section’s Business Meeting.
