On the 120th anniversary of his birth, the annual Hubert Butler Essay Prize will come to Galway in 2020.

Butler was renowned for his groundbreaking essays on topics as diverse and relevant today as they were in the 1950s and 60s. His mantra ‘think globally, act locally’ highlighted the importance of the individual conscience in addressing the position of religious and ethnic minorities including refugees.

Commemorating the work of great 20th Century writer and humanitarian Hubert Butler, the prize focuses on the common ground between European nation states that emerged after the First World War.
