Prize for Innovation in Global Security

The GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security is an annual award established to recognise deserving individuals or organisations that propose an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges, and is designed to reach across all relevant disciplines and fields. The prize consists of a cash award of CHF 10,000, as well as a ceremonial awards dinner in Geneva, including all travel and accommodation expenses covered by the GCSP.

This is an international competition and applications are accepted from anywhere in the world. Applications are welcome from either individuals or groups, from both the public and private sectors. Proposals can be wide-ranging in scope but should include a description of the contribution with a focus on how it is novel, and on its significance to sustainable global security.

The 1st GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security was awarded to a project entitled “Improve the Protection of Children in Conflict - Expanding the function of the ‘Children and Armed Conflict Mobile Application’ towards MRM practitioners in the field”. This mobile app provides a user-friendly pool of resources and recommendations concerning International Humanitarian Law.

Applications will be evaluated by a panel of judges – senior practitioners from international organisations, governments and the private sector. The panel will be co-chaired by the GCSP director, Ambassador Christian Dussey, and the Head of the Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme, Professor Nayef Al-Rodhan. The winner will be announced at an award ceremony held in Geneva
