Vic Taylor was a founder member of the Association of Industrial Relations Academics of Australia and New Zealand (AIRAANZ). Sadly, Vic became ill and died in September 2004.
These awards were established in his honour by Dr Doreen Tan, his widow, in consultation with some of Vic’s colleagues and friends in AIRAANZ.
Nominees for both categories of award should be sometime AIRAANZ members; they should not be disqualified if they are not currently fully paid up members.
Awardees will be listed permanently on the AIRAANZ web site, which will also include these terms of reference and a short biography of Vic Taylor (For a short biography, click here).
The Vic Taylor Most Promising Paper Award From its 2008 conference onwards AIRAANZ will present the annual Vic Taylor Award for the most promising paper which is internationally- and/or comparatively-oriented, submitted to the annual conference. This applies to the submission of full refereed papers only. For further information, please click here.
The Vic Taylor Distinguished Long-Term Contribution Award There will be up to two awards each year given to nominated recipients for distinguished contributions made in the field of education and/or research in the fields covered by AIRAANZ.
These awards are designed to recognize the long-term contributions of academics (educators and/or researchers) for their work in the field of industrial/employment/labour relations or workplace studies. This award is much broader than contributions in terms of AIRAANZ conference papers. For further information, please click here.
