We would like to kindly invite you to our Ceremony, where IPB will award the Séan MacBride Peace Prize to Jeremy Corbyn.
The Ceremony is organized in cooperation with the World Democratic Forum and the City of Geneva.
Jeremy Corbyn is awarded – for his sustained and powerful political work for disarmament and peace. As an active member, vice-chair and now vice-president of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in the UK he has for many years worked to further the political message of nuclear disarmament. As the past chair of the Stop the War Campaign in the UK he has worked for peace and alternatives to war. He has ceaselessly stood by the principles, which he has held for so long, to ensure true security and well-being for all – for his constituents, for the citizens of the UK and for the people of the world.
