Bernard Brodie Prize

Contemporary Security Policy

About the prize

Contemporary Security Policy awards the Bernard Brodie Prize annually to the author of an outstanding article published in the journal the previous year.

The award is named for Dr. Bernard Brodie (1918-1978), author of The Absolute Weapon (1946), Strategy in the Missile Age (1958) and War and Strategy (1973), establishing ideas that remain at the centre of security debates to this day. One of the first analysts to cross between official and academic environments, he pioneered the model of civilian influence that CSP represents. Contemporary Security Policy is honoured to acknowledge the permission of Brodie’s son, Dr. Bruce R. Brodie, to use his father’s name.

The Editor-in-Chief of CSP, Dr. Hylke Dijkstra, has selected a shortlist of the best articles of 2020. A jury composed of members of the CSP Editorial Board will select the winner.
