Bengt Turner Award

The aims of the Bengt Turner Award are to encourage new researchers to write research papers on housing and urban issues linked to the topics of the European Network for Housing Research (ENHR) Working Groups, to increase awareness of ENHR, and to keep alive the memory of Bengt Turner.

As researchers working on or just having finished their PhD are the focus of the Bengt Turner Award, the winning paper would not have to be publishable as a journal article, but it would demonstrate a clear potential to form the basis of a journal article.

As of 2015, the Bengt Turner Award is awarded to the best conference paper of the annual ENHR conference.
A 1st and 2nd runner up are also nominated.

If you wish for your paper to be considered for the award, please tick the corresponding box in the Groups step during submission.

Code of Ethics

All participants should be aware of the Statement on the behaviour of participants of ENHR sponsored activities (Code of Ethics) agreed by the Coordination Committee of the ENHR, as follows:

“The ENHR is an inclusive and democratic organisation that exists to promote research in the area of housing. ENHR strives to bring together people, and accord to them equal respect regardless of their gender, ethnicity, disability, age, opinion, religious or sexual orientation. Consequently behaviour that can be construed as being discriminatory, offensive, predatory or bullying is inconsistent with ENHR’s ethos. Participants at ENHR sponsored activities are reminded that behaviour that respects their colleagues is fundamental to the network’s ethos.”
