The deadline is fast approaching for nominations for the next biennial Thomas J. Dodd Prize in International Justice and Human Rights, to be awarded in Fall 2011 at the University of Connecticut.  Information about the nomination process and past winners is available on the Dodd Center’s website.

The winner of the 2009 Dodd Prize, the Committee to Protect Journalists, has been in the news lately after releasing their annual year-end analysis of violence against journalists worldwide.  Pakistan topped the list of the deadliest countries for journalists, with high numbers in Iraq, Mexico, and Honduras as well.

 Nominations will be accepted through December 31, 2010.
