Former Prizes

  • The Jacqueline Suter Prize for the Best Doctoral Thesis in European Law

This Prize was generously sponsored on a personal basis by the friends and colleagues at the European Court of Justice on behalf of the late Dr. Jacqueline Suter, who met her untimely death on 19 February 2009. Jackie worked for many years as a Head of Division at the ECJ. It is the wish of those who knew her in Luxembourg that her name should be commemorated here at the EUI, to which she always remained very fondly attached. She was one of the first British researchers to take her Ph.D. in the EUI Law Department on 25 March 1985 under the supervision of Prof. Klaus Hopt on the topic “The Regulation of Insider Dealing in Britain and France”.

The prize was awarded in 2009 and in 2012. The prize winners were:

2009: Gracia Marin Duran, Law Department

2012: Sacha M. M. Garben, Law Department


  • The François Mény Prize for the Best Comparative Study of Political Institutions

This Prize was made possible thanks to the generosity of the former EUI President Yves Mény who set it up in memoriam of his son, François.

The Prize was awarded one time in 2010 for the best EUI thesis analysing political institutions in a comparative way. It had a value of 2.000 Euro. The winner of the Prize was Christopher Hanretty of the SPS Department.
