Professor Patrick Minford Wins 2017 Contrarian Prize here

Contrarian Prize Debate “Contrarianism in an age of Conformity” Watch it here...

The Contrarian Prize seeks to recognise individuals in British public life who demonstrate independence, courage and sacrifice.

Now in its seventh year, it aims to shine a light on those who have made a meaningful contribution to the public debate through the ideas that they have introduced or the stand they have taken regardless of whether or not one agrees with their views. . 

The conformists are rewarded with senior positions in government, business, quangos and the media. But there is nothing to acknowledge those that stand up for what they believe in and suffer as a result.  We recognise our military greats but what about those heroes of conscience whose impact may, in time, be profound?

Nominations for the 2019 are now closed. The shortlist will be released in April and the winner be announced in May.
