The board of the Johan Skytte Foundation has due to the ongoing pandemic taken a decision to not hold the prize-award ceremony, banquet and all other Skytte-Prize-related festivities this year. This year’s laureate, Peter J. Katzenstein, will be celebrated next year together with the 2021 Skytte Prize laureate. The next Skytte Prize award ceremony will take place on October 2, 2021.

Earlier this year, Peter J. Katzenstein has been named the 26th recipient of the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science. He is awarded the prize for:

furthering the understanding of how history, culture, and norms shape economies, as well as national and global security policy.
