Daniel Singer Millennium Prize 2012

The Daniel Singer Millennium Prize Foundation annually recognizes an original essay that helps further socialist ideas in the tradition of Daniel Singer. The Daniel Singer Millennium Prize Foundation, Inc., is an educational foundation named after the author, journalist, historian and activist, who died in December 2000. The purpose of the Foundation is to encourage and develop ideas that enhance and extend democratic, civil and economic rights and social justice to all peoples of the world. Each year the Foundation seeks to present a cash prize to the author of an essay of not more than 5,000 words that advances Singer’s ideas and insights concerning the next stage in the struggle toward these goals, as delineated in his last book, Whose Millennium? Theirs or Ours? The deadline for submissions is August 31. An international panel of judges, which includes none of the trustees, reads the submitted essays. The award (assuming a worthy essay is found) is announced in December. The winner is then invited to develop a public lecture based on the winning essay.

The 2012 prize will be awarded for the best essay, of no more than 5,000 words, exploring the question: “From Tahrir and Syntagma Squares to the Indignados and the ‘99%’ movement, 2011 saw people in the streets challenging the monopoly of political, economic and financial power by elite minorities. What, if anything, is new about these movements and can they fundamentally change the status quo?” Essays may be submitted in English, Spanish or French and will be judged by an international panel of distinguished scholars and activists. The winner will be announced in December 2012.
