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 winning article and all of the articles on the shortlist for the 2019 Bernard Brodie Prize are freely available. You can also browse the full list of prize winning articles from previous years.

The 2019 winner was selected by a jury consisting of three members of the Editorial Board: Jack Kalpakian, Andrej Krickovic, and Nicola Leveringhaus.
