The Department of Operational Research at LSE added to its list of recent prize winners when Florence Omosa was awarded the William Robson Memorial Prize. The prize was awarded for her thesis entitled Modelling and Deciding with Development Stakeholders: lessons from NGO projects in Kenya.
William Robson was professor of public administration from 1947 to 1967, and associated with LSE from 1926 until his death in 1980. He was the founder of The Political Quarterly which he jointly edited for 45 years. The prize, which was established by his friends and colleagues, is intended to help current or recent students in the publishing of works in the subject areas of interest to the late Professor Robson. These areas include public administration and planning, law, industry and local government both nationally and internationally.
