The board of the Migration Institute of Finland can award a prize every two years for the best doctoral dissertation related to migration and ethnic relations completed at Finnish universities. The board of the Migration Institute of Finland decides separately on the size of the prize to be awarded at any given time, in 2022 the prize was €4,000.
All ten dissertations submitted for evaluation were very good and deserve praise and attention. However, the jury was unanimous in nominating Olivia Maury’s research for the award.
