:: Abdi Ipekci Friendship and Peace Special Award 2001

The "Abdi Ipekci Friendship and Peace Special Award 2001" has been awarded to Dr. Ata Akçil from Turkey and Dr. Kostas Komnitsas from Greece by the "Milliyet Newspapers" at the Dogan Media Center, Istanbul, Turkey (May 3, 2002).

The Ipekci Peace and Friendship Prize was established 22 years ago, under the auspices of the United Nations, by a Greek citizen, Dr. Andreas Politakis, in memory of Abdi Ipekci, just days after Ipekci's death. Abdi Ipekci was the editor of the Turkish daily Milliyet who was assassinated in 1979 following a trip to Athens where he discussed ways the Greek and Turkish media could work towards the improvement of relations between the two countries. The award is presented every two years on a rotational basis in Athens and Istanbul. Milliyet and the Athens daily Elefherotypia have been the driving forces behind establishing and preserving the award.

This years recipients, the Turkish academic Dr. Ata Akçil and Greek academic Dr. Kostas Komnitsas received the award for collaborative work, both having established an international journal as Editors-in-Chief (The European Journal of Mineral Processing and Environmental Protection) for the past two years.
