Baltic Assembly Prize for CEURUS scholar

Press release — 24 October 2011

Andres Kasekamp, professor of Baltic politics and associated scholar of the Centre for EU-Russia Studies (CEURUS) at the University of Tartu, received the 2011 Baltic Assembly Prize in science for his comprehensive book “A History of the Baltic States”, published in 2010.

As one of the joint Judging Committee members and director of the Latvian Foreign Policy Institute, Andris Sprūds, stresses, “this book keeps the Baltic concept alive. It invites us to look at ourselves not as different nations but as nations that have much in common. Furthermore, this book puts the Baltic states on the map of world literature. And that is the goal of this prize.”

The BA Prizes for Literature, the Arts and Science, each EUR 5,000, were established in 1993 and are awarded annually at the Session of the Baltic Assembly. This year’s award ceremony will be held during the BA session on 25 November in Tallinn.
