SFU Seeks Nominations for Int’l Dialogue Award

We want to highlight the recent call from Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue – an NCDD member organization – for nominations for the Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue which recognizes dialogue practitioners of international excellence. We encourage our members to consider nominating people you think are doing especially impactful work in our field before the Dec. 16 deadline. You can learn more in the Centre’s announcement below or find the original here.


Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue is now accepting nominations for the 2017-18 Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue

The Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue is presented every second year to an individual who has demonstrated international excellence in the use of dialogue to increase mutual understanding and advance complex public issues. Nominations are encouraged from around the world in the fields of international diplomacy & conflict resolution, climate solutions, intercultural dialogue, civic engagement, and urban sustainability.

Criteria used to select the recipient include:

  • The candidate’s demonstrated international excellence in the use of dialogue to increase mutual understanding;
  • The global significance of his or her work in addressing complex and profound public issues; and
  • Related programming opportunities.

Far more than a simple ceremony, the Blaney Award includes a short programming residency in Vancouver, Canada that builds upon the recipient’s work to achieve tangible outcomes, reflecting the mandate of Simon Fraser University to be Canada’s most community-engaged research university. Recent Blaney Award programs have engaged thousands of participants through the hosting of international announcements, book launches, capacity building workshops, and participatory research. The award endowment includes funds to cover recipient transportation and associated programming costs, as well as a $10,000 cash award.
