Professor Kim Richard Nossal of Queen’s University has been awarded the Maureen Appel Molot Best Paper Prize by Carleton University’s Canadian Foreign Policy Journal. Nossal won the 2011 installment of the prize for his piece, Don’t Talk About the Neighbours: Canada and the Regional Politics of the Afghanistan Mission.

The prize is awarded annually for best article published in the CFPJ.
