Robert Papazian Essay Prize 2020



The Robert Papazian Annual Essay Prize on Themes from Ethics and Political Philosophy was established in 2012 in memory of a young political activist, Robert Papazian, who was executed in Iran in 1982 for his ideas and political ideals. The annual essay competition is a joint initiative led by the Centre for Ethics in Public Life at University College Dublin in collaboration with the International Journal of Philosophical Studies (IJPS) and the Robert Papazian prize. The topic for the 2020 competition was “Testimonial Injustice”. The 2020 prize was awarded to Charlotte for her paper ‘Articulating Understanding: A Phenomenological Approach to Testimony on Gendered Violence’. The prize consists of €1500 and publication of her article, alongside the other shortlisted entries, in a special issue of the International Journal of Philosophical Studies on Themes from Testimonial Injustice and Trust.
