Our president Gesine Schwan is honoured with the August-Bebel-Prize 2017

This year, the August-Bebel-Siftung awards its prize to the political scientist and president of the HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA Governance Platform Gesine Schwan.

The August-Bebel-Stiftung, founded by literary Nobel Prize laureate Günter Grass in 2010, aims to promote people who, like August Bebel, have earned themselves a reputation for social justice. Every two years, the foundation honors outstanding personalities with the August-Bebel Prize.

The foundation thus recognizes Gesine Schwan’s passionate and diverse commitment to freedom and democracy and a socially equitable policy in Germany, Europe and worldwide.

The award ceremony will take place on March 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm at the Willy-Brandt-Haus in Berlin. More information can be found here.
