Arthur Mol, professor of Environmental policy at Wageningen University, has won two major research prizes.
Mol will be honoured next summer by the International Sociological Association (ISA) for his work in environmental sociology. He will receive the Frederick H. Buttel International Award for Distinguished Scholarship in Environmental Sociology, awarded every four years and seen as one of the biggest prizes in the field of environmental sociology. Mol will receive the prize during the ISA's annual conference in Gothenburg in Sweden.
He is also due to receive the 2009 Distinguished Contribution Award from the American Sociological Association (ASA), for his work in environmental sociology. This will make him the first non-American to receive the prize since its inception in 1983. The prize will be bestowed on Mol during the ASA conference in Atlanta.
