Each year the Editors of the British Journal of Criminology award the Radzinowicz Prize for the article that in their view has most contributed to knowledge of criminal justice issues and the development of criminology.

The prize is named in honour of Sir Leon Radzinowicz, one of the major figures in the development of criminology in Britain.

The latest Radzinowicz Prize has been awarded to John Braithwaite and Ali Wardak for their two-part article, 'Crime and War in Afghanistan'. Both articles are currently free to download from the British Journal of Criminology website.
