Nominate a candidate for the Stockholm Prize in Criminology
The Stockholm Prize in Criminology was presented for the first time in June 2006. The prize sum amounts to at least 1,000,000 SEK and is awarded to one recipient annually, with the possibility of the prize being shared among co-recipients. The Stockholm Prize in Criminology is awarded for outstanding achievement in criminological research or in the application of research results by practitioners or scholars for the reduction of crime and the advancement of human rights. The winner of the 2018 award is Herman Goldstein. Read more about his work.
Each year, the jury invites nominating bodies from around the world to suggest candidates for the prize. The jury consists of members representing both practitioners and academics. Nominations may be made by any three individual criminologists, any society of criminology and/or other organisation applying or producing criminology. The nominee must be a living physical person, willing and able to receive the Stockholm Prize in Criminology in person and give an acceptance speech on the date required.
The nomination period for the 2019 award will close on May 1, 2018.
