Prize Award Ceremony

The Stockholm Prize in Criminology Award Ceremony 2021

We are very proud to announce that Her Majesty the Queen will be awarding the Stockholm Prize in Criminology to our two prize winners.

Since no prize ceremony was held last year, this year’s prize ceremony will honor the 2020 prize winners – Philip J. Cook from Duke University, Durham, USA and Franklin E. Zimring from the University of California at Berkeley, USA – for their evidence-based explanations of gun policy effects.

This prestigious ceremony will be led by Anne Ramberg, Chair of the Stockholm Prize in Criminology Foundation and master of ceremonies for the evening. Over the course of 30 minutes you will have the opportunity to listen to Her Majesty the Queen and Sweden’s Minister for Justice and Migration honoring the two prize winners. Lawrence Sherman, co-chair of the prize jury, will give the jury’s motivation, and Professor Cook and Professor Zimring will give a short speech. Last but not least, there will be two beautiful music performances from Stockholm City Hall.

Join us on June 15 at 19.00 (CEST) when the award ceremony will be broadcast!
As a registered participant for the Symposium, you can follow the ceremony live on the virtual symposium platform and if not registered, live here on the symposium website.
