Miriam Zucker, a current visiting fellow at Osgoode's Institute for Feminist Legal Studies (IFLS), has been selected as the winner of the Audre Rapoport Prize for Scholarship on Gender and Human Rights for her paper “Between Intra-Group Vulnerability and Inter-Group Vulnerability: Bridging the Gaps in the Theoretical Scholarship on Internal Minorities”.

The prize committee received submissions from many parts of the world. The papers were judged (with authors’ names and affiliations removed) in a two-part process.  A multidisciplinary and distinguished University of Texas panel selected three papers to forward to a group of highly accomplished external judges for a second round of judging. All expressed delight by the high quality of the paper. One judge, for example, stated that the paper offers “a terrific analysis” and that “the research undertaken is very impressive.”

The paper and the author's bio will soon be posted on the Rapoport Center's website at:
