The 'Premio Boulvert' is a major international prize which is awarded every three years to the best legal history book written by a young researcher and published in Europe in the last three years. A number of special prizes are also awarded on behalf of the Italian constitutional court and a number of European universities. For the 11th edition of the contest, covering the years 2016-2018, 32 books were nominated. The jury comprised 12 renowned professors from 8 different countries.
Premio della Corte costituzionale
Elsemieke's PhD thesis was awarded the 'Premio della Corte costituzionale italiana', the prize from the Constitutional Court of Italy, which is awarded for the best book dealing with the history of public law. It is exceptional that a Dutch researcher wins a prize in the competition, all the more so for a thesis written in Dutch.
Elsemieke's thesis is available on the Leids Repositorium.
