LIS granted the Aldi Award for 2023 LIS Working Paper

This year’s winner of the LIS Aldi Award is Itay Machtei (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) for the LIS Working Paper No. 854 entitled “Testing Theories of Redistribution: Structure of Inequality, Electoral Institutions, and Partisan Politics” co-written with Evelyne Huber and John D. Stephens.

The winning paper underwent a rigorous evaluation process, with six reviewers assessing its merits, and it was unanimously voted as the best among the qualified LIS and LWS Working papers. Every year, the award is granted to the writer under age 40 whose LIS or LWS Working Paper from the previous year best demonstrates the qualities of good scholarship that Aldi exhibited.

Itay will be presenting the winning paper at the upcoming LIS Summer Workshop.
