IUSSP Laureate Award 2022 – Call for nominations


Deadline for nominations extended to 1 March 2022.

Would you like one of your colleagues to be honoured for their decisive contribution to the advancement of demography and population research? Do not hesitate to round up support and propose a nomination for the 2021 IUSSP Laureate award. Your colleague may become the next IUSSP Laureate, following in the footsteps of previous illustrious IUSSP Laureates (see the full list of Laureates on the IUSSP website).


Last year, the IUSSP Council decided to extend the eligibility criteria for the Laureate Award in order to make it more inclusive: Laureate award candidates are no longer required to be IUSSP members. Outstanding contributions to the advancement of population sciences and distinguished service rendered to the Union and the profession are factors that will be taken into consideration by the IUSSP Council in selecting the 2022 Laureate. Members of the current Council may not be nominated for the award. The nomination letter should include a supporting statement and be signed by at least five current IUSSP members of different nationalities. Self-nominations will not be considered. The IUSSP Council members select the winning Laureate candidate by secret ballot, and therefore they should not be contacted to nominate or support individual candidates. The letter of nomination and all supporting documents should be sent to the IUSSP Secretariat in Paris to the attention of the Executive Director, Mary Ellen Zuppan, by 1 March 2022.


For questions regarding a member's eligibility, please contact the IUSSP Secretariat at contact@iussp.org.



  • Please send Word and pdf files of the nomination letter and nominee’s curriculum vitae by email to: zuppan@iussp.org.
  • Individual emails of support for a candidate should be sent to the person coordinating the nomination, who will send them as a group to zuppan@iussp.org.  
  • Please include “IUSSP 2022 Laureate Nomination” in the subject line of the email.
