Barrington Prize 2023

The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland would like to announce the opening of nominations for the Barrington Medal.

The Barrington Medal is awarded annually by the Council of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland under the auspices of the Barrington Trust (founded in 1836 by the bequest of John Barrington).

This year the Society has decided to amend the terms of the award to make it more attractive to new researchers in the economics and social sciences in Ireland. The prize, which includes a silver medal, will also include an increased financial award of €2,500.

Nominations, accompanied by CVs and abstracts, will be accepted up the close of business on July 14th 2023 and should be sent to, as should any queries regarding this announcement.

The successful candidate shall give a lecture to the society and the paper will be published in the SSISI Journal.

The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland is an all-Ireland body that has been in continuous existence since 1847. The Society organises seven or so public meetings each year at which papers are read followed by an open forum discussion. The proceedings are subsequently published in the Journal of the Society. The Society provides a unique meeting ground for discussion between decision-makers in the business, public service, trade union, academic, and research communities. The Society is run on an entirely voluntary basis by a Council elected by the members and is financed by the subscriptions of members, individuals, and corporate.
