Order from the Swedish Church Information Service (opens in new window, only in Swedish)
'Pengar i handen, sociala trygghetssystem som metod för att bekämpa fattigdom och hunger' (Cash in hand: Social security as a means of combating poverty and hunger)
Prize motivation: Her essay Cash in hand: Social security as a means of combating poverty and hunger, published by the Swedish Church and the Nordic Africa Institute, describes the methods of fighting poverty that were crucial to Sweden’s growing welfare, but which so far have been neglected in meeting the challenges facing the world's poor countries. Gunnel Axelsson Nycander’s work is thus an important contribution to the discussion on the design of international cooperation.
