Mar. 27, 2014—The University of Denver's Josef Korbel School congratulates Associate Professor Erica Chenoweth for receiving the International Studies Association's 2014 Karl Deutsch Award.

According to the International Studies Association, the Karl Deutsch Award is presented annually to a young scholar who is judged to have made the most significant contribution to the study of International Relations and Peace Research.

Chenoweth is an affiliate of the Josef Korbel School's Sié Chéou-Kang Center for International Security & Diplomacy and is also an associate senior researcher at the Peace Research Institute of Oslo. Through her research, she takes on some of today's key questions about political violence and its alternatives. Her research has been featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The Economist, and elsewhere. In 2013 she was named to Foreign Policy magazine's list of Leading Global Thinkers, and received the Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order, a $100,000 prize that she shares with her co-author Maria J. Stephan, in recognition for the ideas contained in their book Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict. The book also won the 2012 Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award.
