The Herman Diederiks Prize is awarded each year by the International Association for the History of Crime and Criminal Justice (IAHCCJ) to recognise a novel article relating to the field of crime history and penal justice written by a researcher at the beginning of his/her career.

The Prize was established in 1997 as a tribute to the Association’s founding president and is maintained with the support of France’s Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (FMSH).

Entries for the 2020 Prize must be submitted by 30 September 2020.
