According to the Council of European Studies “this award honours Kuhn’s outstanding contributions to scholarship on Europe. Foremost of all, her theoretical and empirical work on the impact of transnational experience on support of European integration and European identification, but also her sophisticated analysis of the role of education in the explanation of attitudes to European integration, of solidarity among Europeans, and of other topics macro- and micro-connected with contemporary Europe.
Kuhn’s wisdom in choosing research topics at the center of the political debate and her methodological innovativeness have earned her a great reputation and some of the most competitive and prestigious research grants in the European academic field. This award is a recognition of her past achievements and also a bet on a brilliant career ahead.”
An award ceremony will be held at the annual conference in Lisbon in two weeks.
