The Fifth Henderson Prize For The Advancement Of Liberty

On this 172nd anniversary of the passage of the 1833 Slavery Abolition Act in Great Britain, the award honors the first successful effort in world history to permanently end slavery. Noteworthy among the various developments that led to this victory is the Reform Act of 1832, Britain's first major electoral reform.
