The Elizabeth Haub Prize

The Elizabeth Haub Prize for environmental law was established
in 1973 in honour of Mrs. Elizabeth Haub, a devoted supporter of environmental protection. Since then, an international jury consisting of six prominent environmental lawyers has annually awarded the Prize to some of the world’s most leading environmental law specialists for their exceptional achievements in the field of international environmental law.
The Prize is generally considered as the most prestigious and renowned international distinction that can be conferred upon an environmental lawyer. Between 1973 and 2007 the Prize was administered jointly by Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the International Council of Environmental Law (ICEL).
According to an agreement between ICEL and Stockholm University, the prize has been awarded by Stockholm University from 2008.
The Prize is normally handed over to the winners in a special ceremony that will be held one year after the Jury has announced its decision.
