|Recipient||Howard Rosenthal (NYU)|
In a career spanning more than 50 years and going strong, Rosenthal has been a foundational figure in the empirical testing of theoretical models (EITM) developing innovative approaches to the study of spatial voting, ideology, and revealed preference among other important areas of research. His work integrates the theoretical insights of positive political economy with novel empirical methods yielding results and approaches that have become canonical in the study of legislatures, policy-making, and elections.
