Daniel Singer


‘Daniel Singer was an author, lecturer and The Nation’s longtime Europe correspondent whose unique voice for democratic socialism lives on through the Daniel Singer Millennium Prize Foundation. Essays developing ideas relevant to Daniel’s themes are judged by an international panel of distinguished scholars and activists and the winning paper is discussed at the annual Left Forum conference. Daniel’s voice continues to resound. It mustn’t die.’

Call for Submissions to the 2012 Daniel Singer Millennium Prize.

The Daniel Singer Millennium Prize Foundation congratulates Richard Swift, author of Preparing the Ground: Left Strategy Beyond the Apocalypse, which won the 2011 Singer Prize. The $2,500 annual prize is a tribute to the outstanding writer, lecturer and thinker, who died in December 2000.

The Singer Foundation invites submissions to its 2012 competition.

The prize will be awarded for an original essay of not more than 5,000 words, which explores the question:

‘From Tahrir and Syntagma Squares to the Indignados and the 99% movement, 2011 saw people in the streets challenging the monopoly of political, economic and financial power by elite minorities. What, if anything, is new about these movements and can they fundamentally change the status quo?’

Essays may be submitted in English, Spanish or French, and will be judged by an international panel of distinguished scholars and activists. The winner will be announced in December 2012.

Essays can be sent either by post or e-mail to
