DLS scholar wins prestigious international law research prize

Associate Professor Shiri Krebs has won the highly prestigious and selective David D. Caron Prize, awarded by the American Society of International Law (ASIL).

The David D. Caron Prize is awarded annually to the best paper in international law by an early-career academic who has completed their PhD within the last five years.

Assoc. Prof. Krebs’ winning paper, “The Effects of Visual Evidence on the Application of International Humanitarian Law: A behavioural approach”, was selected from among the papers that were peer-reviewed and accepted for presentation at the society’s annual research forum.  

Assoc. Prof. Krebs says “I am honoured and delighted by this international recognition of my work. I am especially grateful for the international attention this particular research project now receives, as it advances an innovative behavioural approach to sensitive military decision-making processes, exploring issues that are not typically at the centre of scholarly attention.”  

The ASIL annual meeting, held each year in Washington, DC, is typically attended by thousands of international academics and practitioners. The formal prize and certificate are awarded at the meeting’s plenary session, an important and always well-attended event.  

As the 2021 winner of the Caron Prize, ASIL will fund Shiri’s participation in the 2022 Annual Meeting, covering her airfare, conference attendance and accommodation in Washington DC.
