The theme of the 2016 contest is:

Discuss the required qualities and discipline of a Secretary-General in view of the practices and achievements of the successive Secretary-Generals.”

Submissions must be original and unpublished papers, and must include reference notes and a bibliography if other authors’ works are cited.

A grand prize (¥500,000), a second prize (¥200,000) and several honorable mentions (¥50,000 each) will be awarded. The winners will be notified by September 2016.
