I was awarded the 2023 Stockholm Prize in Criminology.  The Stockholm Prize in Criminology is the most important international prize awarded for outstanding achievements in criminological research or for the application of research results by practitioners for the reduction of crime and the advancement of human rights.

The international award, equivalent to the Nobel in criminology, has highlighted the contributions of the most prominent lawyers, sociologists, psychologists, economists, and criminologists in the field, including the late professor Joan Petersilia at the Stanford Law School. The jury for the award comprises academics and practitioners from the five continents, who select nominations made by any three individual criminologists, any society of criminology, and/or other organization applying or producing criminology.

The motivation for awarding the 2023 Stockholm Prize in Criminology to Professor Magaloni was summarized this way by the jury: "The 2023 winner of the Stockholm Prize in Criminology is the leading scholar in the world for demonstrating that major changes in policing can increase compliance with the rule of law under the challenges of high violence levels and strong popular demand to reduce crime." 

Under the aegis of the Swedish Ministry of Justice, the Prize sum amounts to 1,000,000 SEK, funded permanently by the Swedish Ministry of Justice, the Torsten Söderberg Foundation, The Jerry Lee Foundation, and the Hitachi Mirai Foundation. The Award Ceremony will take place at the Stockholm City Hall during the international Stockholm Criminology Symposium, June 12-14, 2023.
