The Government of Canada has established a prize (the “Canada Prize“) to be awarded by the International Academy of Comparative Law on the subject of comparative law.

The work should be of a high scientific quality, suitable for publication in monograph form.

The prize (ten thousand Canadian dollars), will be awarded every four years at the International Congress of Comparative Law held under the Aegis of the Academy. The next Canada Price will be awarded in Vienna (Austria) in 2014.
