The Allianz Kulturstiftung and the Klett-Cotta publishing house will award the prize, founded in memory of Jean Améry for important contemporary essays, to Ivan Krastev in 2020. The jury, chaired by Robert Menasse, explained their decision by stating »The clarity of thinking against the appointments of the time: That is, among other things, what Ivan Krastev has in common with Jean Améry«. The prize is awarded every two years for outstanding achievements in the field of contemporary, progressive essays. The award winner will talk to Shalini Randeria [participates remotely].
The conversation will be held in English.
