Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State (2009-13), has been voted the winner of the Chatham House Prize 2013.
Members of The Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House have selected Hillary Rodham Clinton in recognition of her personal leadership in driving a new era of US diplomatic engagement and for her particular focus on promoting education and rights for women and girls.
The Prize is presented annually to the statesperson deemed by members of The Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House to have made the most significant contribution to the improvement of international relations in the previous year.
Secretary Clinton will be presented with a crystal award and a scroll, signed by Her Majesty The Queen, patron of the institute, at a ceremony in London in autumn 2013. Previous winners of the award include Burmese democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi and President Lula of Brazil.
