Since 1998 the Jury has selected recipients from wide and diverse fields.
Some laureates help families overcome poverty and live in dignity, courageously champion the rights of indigenous peoples, or fight racial oppression. Others have made it their mission to reconcile people and nations, take on the powers destroying the environment on which we all depend, or promote nonviolence, demanding aggressors put down their weapons and abolish weapons of mass terror.
The recipient is awarded a $50,000 prize to further their cause of peace with justice and a hand-made glass trophy crafted by Australian artist Brian Hirst. They spend a week in Sydney to promote understanding of their work by engaging with the media, addressing the public at the City of Sydney Peace Prize Lecture, and meeting with students at Cabramatta High School’s Peace Day.
