These are the winners of the FSS Research Awards 2022

26 January 2023
During last Friday’s Talma event 2023, the Faculty of Social Sciences celebrated its research accomplishments. During the event, three research awards were granted: the master thesis award, the dissertation award, and the junior research award.

FSS junior Research Award 2022  
The FSS Research Award aims to bring the most appealing, promising and original research achievements into the spotlight. This year the FSS Research Award was granted to a junior research talent. 

This year, social and cultural anthropologist Luisa Schneider won the FSS junior Research Award for her original and impactful ethnographic research. “Luisa's ethnographic research in Sierra Leone, homelessness and precariously housed people, and the implications for social cohesion and the contemporary welfare state is extensive. She also has a strong talent and drives to present the results and insights from her research to broader audiences, both policymakers and the general public, among others through contributing to video productions and museum exhibitions,” the jury wrote in their report. “We see in Luisa a very promising young researcher and academic who does interesting and original research and invests a lot in reaching out to non-academic circles.”  

FSS Dissertation Award 2022  
The FSS Dissertation Award seeks to increase the quality of empirical research in the broad field of social sciences. The granting of the FSS Dissertation Award is open to all FSS PhD students that defended their dissertation in the past two years at the faculty. 

This year, organizational scientist Sarah van Duijn won the FSS Dissertation Award. The jury specifically awarded Sarah as the winner because of the multi-faceted talents presented in her research. “In speed skating, sometimes you have exceptional talents who can not only win all-around championships but also achieve gold at the Olympics on individual distances. Our winner is such a talent at these FSS scientific Olympics,” the jury wrote. “The thesis that wins this year's dissertation prize is substantial in size, but is a consistent whole from the first to the last page, takes the reader through the intricacies of the research process outlined, demonstrates great academic maturity, and has already made important contributions to science and practice.”  

FSW Johannes van der Zouwen Master Thesis Award 2022  
The FSS Johannes van der Zouwen Master Thesis Award is granted to the most impressive master thesis within the social sciences. The master thesis should have received at least an 8 and finished as well as assessed within 1 year of the application deadline.    

Danique de Rijk won this year’s masterthesis award. The student from the research master Societal Resilience wrote the thesis: “Smuggling knowledge, policing ‘habitus’ and pioneering innovation: A study on the Public Prosecutor, social innovation & learning-led maritime policing of drug smuggling.” 

Congratulations to all the winners of this year’s awards!
