2020 Donner Prize Shortlist

April 21, 2021

Congratulations to Ronald Deibert whose book “Reset: Reclaiming the Internet for Civil Society” has been shortlisted for the 2020 Donner Prize given by the Donner Canadian Foundation to recognise the best public policy thinking, writing and research by a Canadian.

The prize is meant to encourage an open exchange of ideas and to provide a springboard for authors who may not necessarily be well-known, but who can make an original and meaningful contribution to policy discourse.

The Donner Canadian Foundation, one of Canada’s largest foundations, was established in 1950 by businessman and philanthropist William H. Donner to support projects that advance the common good in Canada by encouraging private initiative, independence and individual responsibility. Over the years, the Foundation has been instrumental in encouraging and supporting public policy research throughout Canada in a variety of fields. Since 1967, the Foundation has contributed over $150 million to more than 2,500 projects across the country.

The winner will be announced on May 19th.
