Qualitative and Multi-Method Research Section Award Recipients 

Alexander L. George Article Award
Honors Alexander George’s contributions to the comparative case-study method, including his work linking that method to a systematic concern with research design, and his contribution of developing the idea and the practice of process tracing. This award may be granted to a journal article or to a chapter in an edited volume that stands on its own as an article. The award will be given to an article or book chapter published in the calendar year prior to the year of the APSA meeting at which the award is presented, with the date of publication being established by the journal issue for articles and the copyright date of the book for chapters.
