The Lionel Gelber Prize was founded in 1989 in memory of Canadian diplomat Lionel Gelber (1907-1989). The largest juried award of its kind, it seeks to deepen public debate on significant global issues by recognizing the world’s best non-fiction book in English on foreign affairs. The award is presented annually by the Lionel Gelber Foundation, in partnership with Foreign Policy Magazine and the Munk School of Global Affairs.
