The Holberg Memorial Prize
Ronald Dworkin has developed an original and highly influential legal theory grounding law in morality, characterized by a unique ability to tie together abstract philosophical ideas and arguments with concrete everyday concerns in law, morals, and politics.
The Ludvig Holberg Memorial fund was established in 2003 by the Norwegian Parliament. The Board of the Fund annually awards the Holberg International Memorial Prize for outstanding scholarly work in the fields of the arts and humanities, social sciences, law and theology.
The Fund also awards The Nils Klim Prize to a young Nordic researcher under 35 years who has made an outstanding contribution to research within one of these fields.
