Somerville JRF receives award acknowledging the impact of his work on water justice
Congratulations to our Fulford Junior Research Fellow Hussam Hussein on being awarded the Achieving Impact award from the Department of Politics and International Relations brand new, biennial Impact Awards.
The DPIR Impact Awards were conceived as a means of celebrating how research in Politics and International Relations makes a difference beyond academia. It has two prize categories, recognising ‘Impact Leaders’ and ‘Achieving Impact’.
The Impact Leader Award recognises a significant track record of achieving impact or a commitment to collaboration and engaged research, while the Achieving Impact Award recognises and rewards research that has achieved, or is currently achieving, demonstrable policy, economic, societal, or cultural impacts.
Hussam is a Departmental Lecturer and Research Fellow in International Relations at the DPIR, and his research is aiding the nation of Jordan in transitioning towards a sustainable use of water resources, ensuring water security and consequently political stability.
In recognition of this impact, Hussam Hussein was awarded the Achieving Impact award, with Associate Professor of European Politics Radoslaw Zubek noted as Highly Commended.
