Today, the Perry Center announced a call for nominations for the 2016 William J. Perry Award for Excellence in Security and Defense Education. Nominators from around the world are asked to submit the names of individuals and institutions advancing security and defense education in the Americas. Awardees will be chosen by the Perry Center Award Committee and honored later this year. The deadline for nominations is June 30, 2016.
In 2015, the Perry Center recognized Admiral Vidal Francisco Soberón Sanz, Secretary of the Mexican Navy, and Professor Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, Ph.D. Recent recipients in the institutional category include Spain’s Center of Advanced Studies of National Defense (CESEDEN), the Inter-American Defense College, and the National War College (ESDEGUE) of Colombia, and the Regional Security System (RSS).
