Portrait of Prof. Markus Dubber

Prof. Markus Dubber is the recipient of the prominent 2014 Konrad Adenauer Research Award from the Royal Society of Canada in recognition of his efforts to promote academic collaboration between Canada and Germany. The award is given annually to a Canadian scholar in the humanities or social sciences, and is named by a jury of his peers, Royal Society of Canada Fellows, and representatives from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Dubber's research expertise focuses on theoretical, comparative, and historical aspects of criminal law.

The Royal Society of Canada announced 17 award recipients today.

“The 2014 group of RSC Award winners – representing fields as diverse as history and physics - is a testament to the multidisciplinary strength of Canadian talent," said Graham Bell, RSC president. "These prestigious awards within the Canadian scholarly community serve as a reminder that the Royal Society of Canada recognizes and celebrates
research, scholarship and the arts in all their variety of expression.”

The award will be given at a ceremony on November 22 in Quebec City, lauding other RSC winners, including the 90 new Fellows for 2014, which include law colleagues, Profs. Ran Hirschl and Ayelet Shachar.
