Global Economy Prize

Annually the Kiel Institute awards - jointly with its partners - the Global Economy Prize to influential personalities in politics, business and science.

The Global Economy Prize is awarded since 2005 by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy and its partners, the City of Kiel and the Schleswig-Holstein Chamber of Commerce. The prize is meant to honor those who have proposed creative, pathbreaking initiatives to deal with globalization and who dare envision a more wholesome future by addressing the global problems of our time. It is awarded annually to influential personalities in politics, business and science, who have made an outstanding contribution to establishing a just and protective society based on individual initiative and responsibility.
