ICAS Book Prize

ICAS Book Prize

The ICAS Book Prize (IBP) was established in 2003 by the International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS). The IBP is awarded to outstanding publications in the field of Asian Studies. It was originally launched to bring a focus to academic publications on Asia; to increase their worldwide visibility and to encourage a further interest in the world of Asian Studies.

Organised every two years, the IBP has grown from a small experiment, to one of the largest book prizes of its kind. In addition to the English Book and Dissertation prizes with which it all started, publications in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish have also been included in the most recent editions of the book prize. With this multilingual approach, in cooperation with a host of partners and sponsors worldwide, ICAS is increasingly decentring the landscape of knowledge about and in Asia. For the 2021 edition, IBP worked together with of the Association for Hong Kong Studies on a new initiative, on an experimental basis: IBP for Best Article on Global Hong Kong Studies. This turned out to be a great success with almost one hundred submissions.
