The Board of Directors of the US Peace Memorial Foundation has voted unanimously to award the 2022 US Peace Prize to Costs of War “For Crucial Research to Shed Light on The Human, Environmental, Economic, Social, and Political Costs of U.S. Wars.”

On September 30, 2022, Michael D. Knox, US Peace Memorial Foundation Chair, presented the US Peace Prize to Costs of War at a workshop held at Watson Institute, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. He thanked them for their important work that could help end U.S. wars. Knox said, “The research and scholarly publications generated by Costs of War’s faculty and staff provide accurate data that can truly impact our public and foreign policy. Your outreach to the media, lawmakers, and educators helps to build momentum towards reversing long-standing patterns of U.S. militarism.”

The program’s Co-Directors, Drs. Neta C. Crawford, Catherine Lutz, and Stephanie Savell issued this joint statement in response to receiving the award: “On behalf of our global network of over 50 scholars and experts, we’re thrilled to receive the US Peace Prize for the Costs of War and deeply honored to be included amongst the other exemplary awardees. This prize is a testament to the tireless hard work and creative vision of so many people, from the scholars who share their findings with the public to the many people who build Costs of War’s impact from behind the scenes; all of us share a passion for working against militarism.” (Photo: U.S. Army/Spc.
