ICIP Peace in Progress Award

At the end of 2007 the Parliament of Catalonia passed the “Law for the Promotion of Peace” resulting in the creation of the International Catalan Institute for Peace (ICIP). The principle purpose of the ICIP is to promote a culture of peace in Catalonia as well as throughout the world, to endorse peaceful solutions and conflict resolutions and to endow Catalonia with an active role as an agent of peace.

The International Catalan Institute for Peace has convened the ICIP Peace in Progress Award every year since 2011. This prize aims to publicly recognize individuals, entities or institutions that, in an outstanding and extensive manner, have worked for, and contributed to, the promotion and building of peace.

The ICIP Peace in Progress Award is granted by agreement of the Governing Board of ICIP and consists of public recognition, a sculpture created by the Nobel Peace Prize winner, artist and activist Adolfo PĂ©rez Esquivel, called Porta del Sol, and a financial prize of 4,000 euros. The award is presented at an institutional award ceremony which takes place annually at the Catalan Parliament.
