Crick Prize for Best Article 2016
Sukhdev Johal, Michael Moran and Karel Williams have won the prize for their article ‘Breaking the Constitutional Silence: the Public Services Industry and Government.' The authors have received their prize money of £1000 to be shared and the article has been made free for a month. You can read the article here.
The authors write:
"It’s an honour to receive the Political Quarterly prize for best article of 2016, in particular because of the association with Bernard Crick, a great editor and a great public intellectual. The paper tries to carry out the most important role of the public intellectual: to use the evidence and insights of dispassionate inquiry to throw light on a policy problem. In this case the problem is one of neglect: the absence of any attempt to incorporate the great power of the corporation into the constitution of the UK. Our work is part of a larger body of continuing research and advocacy on the Foundational Economy carried out with colleagues from a wide range of institutions in the UK and abroad."
Michael Moran, Sukhdev Johal and Karel Williams.
