Each year, all IPA Sections worldwide are invited to forward nominations for the IPA World Prize to the International Executive Board (IEB) of the IPA.
This prestigious IPA award recognises and rewards contributions by individuals or organisations for special and lasting commitments through a project for the benefit of society on matters of Human Rights or the preservation of World Peace, and consists of a monetary award accompanied by a certificate.
The IPA World Prize is awarded during the annual IPA World Congress, and an official press release will be issued.
As a norm, one prize may be awarded per year.
In 2016, however, the nominations received by the IEB were of such high calibre that two prizes were handed out:
Maria Appelblom, member of IPA Sweden, received the IPA World Prize 2016 for her outstanding contribution to policing and other humanitarian projects over many years.
In addition, several regions of IPA Greece received the IPA World Prize 2016 in recognition for their exemplary efforts in providing humanitarian support and services to refugees and immigrants during the refugee crisis.
The nomination period for the IPA World Prize 2017 runs until 21 April 2017
, and we would therefore like to invite all IPA Sections to forward any nominations they might wish to submit as soon as possible to the IPA Secretary General, Georgios Katsaropoulos at firstname.lastname@example.org , with a copy to the IAC at email@example.com
as soon as possible.
We look forward to hearing from you!
