Professor of Government at the University of Southampton, Rod Rhodes, has been given the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award by the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR).

Professor Rhodes, who is also Emeritus Professor of Politics at the University of Newcastle, impressed the awards jury with his "exceptional record in the many areas of the profession: from teaching and publishing to advising and disseminating."

The Prize will be presented at the ECPR General Conference in Montreal on 27 August 2015.

The panel went on to say: "The impact of [his] work on the discipline of political science is easily 'measured', both by the by now conventional bibliographic indicators and, more impressionistically but equally clearly, by the impact on the work of many of us."

Upon hearing he had received the award, Professor Rhodes commented: "An unexpected and pleasant surprise.  It is particularly pleasing to receive recognition from my professional community, not only in the UK, but in the rest of Europe."

Professor Rhodes is live Vice-President and former Chair and President of the Political Studies Association of the United Kindom; and a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in both Britain and Australia.

He has also been a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, editor of Public Administration from 1986 to 2011, and Treasurer of the Australian Political Studies Association, 1994 to 2011.
