Estoril Global Issues Distinguished Book Prize 2019


In every edition of the Estoril Conferences, we award a distinguished book, related to globalization and its inherent issues, with the Estoril Global Issues Distinguished Book Prize.

The prize consists of 15.000 Euros and the deadline for submissions for its sixth edition is October 31, 2018.

The distinguished book must deal with significant global issues and seek to provide both new analysis as well as new perspectives on the subject of globalization, so as to help the world better understand its global relevant risks and collective action problems.

The best book on globalization will be chosen by an international jury, composed by a Jury Coordinator and high level representatives of our Academic Partners.
