A team of Carleton University professors has been awarded the Canadian Political Science Association’s 2014 Donald Smiley book prize.
Allan Maslove and Bruce Doern from the School of Public Policy and Administration, and former SPPA professor Michael Prince, won the award for their book, Canadian Public Budgeting in the Age of Crises.
The book, published in 2013, develops a timely approach to budgeting and public policy that reflects Canada’s financial and political conditions after the 2008 financial crisis.
The prize was established in 1992 to honour the life and work of world-renowned Canadian political scientist Donald V. Smiley, who died two years earlier.
Each year, at its annual conference, the CPSA awards the Donald Smiley prize to “the best book published in English or French in a field related to the study of government and politics in Canada.”
This year’s conference was held in St. Catharines, Ont.
