Carleton University’s David Carment, editor of the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (CFPJ), announced that Greg Anderson and Thomas Juneau have won the 2019 CFPJ Best Paper Prize for their articles, respectively titled “David and Goliath in Canada-U.S. Relations: who’s really who?” and “A story of failed re-engagement: Canada and Iran, 2015–2018.”
The prize is awarded annually for the best article published in the CFPJ. Each refereed contribution is eligible for consideration and members of CFPJ’s editorial and international advisory board judge the articles based on scholarship, contribution to knowledge and debate, writing style and audience accessibility. The results this year were so close the committee decided to recognize both authors.
The award includes a $500 prize. Past winners include Stephen Brown, Emma Ashford, Erica Chenoweth and Laura Dugan, Christian Leuprecht, Michael Urban, Stéphane Roussel, Daryl Copeland, Kim Nossal, Susan Henders and Mary Young, and David Gordon.

Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University in Washington, D.C.
