Sir Paul Collier received the P&V Foundation's 2017 Citizenship Award

The P&V Foundation gave out its 13th Citizenship Award on 28th November 2017 to Sir Paul Collier. The Citizenship Award is an annual award conferred to a person, initiative or organisation, of Belgian or international origin, whose activity has shown exemplary commitment to promoting an open, democratic, tolerant society. 

This year, the jury chose an internationally-recognised academic luminary who specialises in development and migration issues. Paul Collier combines his excellent academic work with his strong, pragmatic commitment to more equality and social justice in the world. He has also shown a very high level of social engagement in at least three areas: economic development in Africa, the fight against poverty and refugee issues.
