Carolin Rapp wins Jowell-Kaase prize

The CUPESSE consortium congratulates its colleague Carolin Rapp from the University of Bern, for winning the Jowell-Kaase prize. It was awarded to her at the 3rd International ESS conference in Lausanne from 13-15 July 2016 for her paper: “Is It All the Shame? Forms of Racial Prejudice, their Origins and Consequences reconsidered.”

Within her paper, Rapp used the Date of the current European Social Survey to analyse racial prejudice in a more sophisticated way than has ever been done before. By showing four dimensions of racial prejudice, she elaborates how origins and consequences of these different types of racist attitudes vary.

The Jowell-Kaase Early Career Researcher Prize is given to a doctoral student or a researcher within three years of receiving their PhD, and is intended to recognize excellence in the field of comparative social research.
