This May, Elliott School faculty, staff, and special guests gathered to celebrate an exemplary year in research achievements. Thanks to tireless efforts from faculty and research centers and institutes, 2018-2019 was a fantastic year for research at the Elliott School. As this year’s commemoration of accomplishments clearly indicates, Elliott School scholarship brought important insights to a diverse range of today’s great questions. This year's event offered an opportunity to honor this work and to confer Elliott School service commendations and awards. This year, outgoing director of the Institute for International Economic Policy (IIEP), Professor Maggie X. Chen, received a service commendation for her two outstanding years at the helm of IIEP. In addition, Research Professor Marlene Laruelle took home the 2019 Michael E. Brown Research Prize. As a recipient of this prize, Professor Laruelle served as a keynote speaker for the event and gave a fascinating address, which detailed her research journey and offered important lessons for any researcher in international affairs.
