Peacepedia Brilliance Recognised by Dayton Prize

Further praise and recognition for the Oxford International Encyclopaedia of Peace, which we’ve mentioned several times.   Professor Nigel Young has won the Award for Scholarship of the Dayton International Literary Peace Prize 2011 for his work in compiling and editing the Encyclopaedia, which was described by  Professor Robert Fogarty at the awards ceremony as “a heroic and brilliant piece of collective scholarship”.

Professor Young played a key role in the development of the University of Bradford’s Peace Studies department, and has strong links with Commonweal.   The Encyclopaedia includes entries by various University staff and former staff and Commonweal contacts.  It is very exciting that this major award recognises Professor Young’s efforts and the high quality of the work itself.
