We are very happy to announce that dissertation “The Political Economy of Private Security” by our former colleague Helge Staff has been awarded the Prize of the “Freundeskreis” of the TU Kaiserslautern. This is a great honor, because Helge’s dissertation has succeeded in an univesity-wide competition and is now one of 6 theses that has been distinguished in a ceremony on December 1st. It is the second prize for this excellent thesis after the work has already been decorated with the “Haaß award”. Congratulations to Helge from the entire team!
Very timely, the book has now also appeared in print in the “Policy Analysis” series at the LIT-Verlag.
