ICAS Book Prize (IBP)


The ICAS Book Prize (IBP) was established by the International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS) in 2004. It aims to create an international focus for academic publications on Asia, thus increasing their worldwide visibility. The biennial ICAS Book Prize is awarded for outstanding English-language works and dissertations on Asia, in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Since 2015 the IBP English Edition is sponsored by The Asian Library at Leiden University. In 2017 the biennial IBP will for the first time also award outstanding works on Asia in the Humanities and Social Sciences, in the following languages: Chinese, French, German and Korean.
