Machiavelli Award 2015 for Dutch Safety Board

The Dutch Safety Board has won the Machiavelli Award 2015 because “with the report on the MH17 disaster they have – where possible – given clarity to the relatives in particular and the world in general. The way in which the Safety Board has done it provides a good example of outstanding communication. In an extremely sensitive situation with high-level geopolitical interests as well as extreme grief of the survivors, the Safety Board has conducted and published its research in an authoritative way”.
