      Veteran economist Sen awarded Peace Prize of the German Book Trade

      Economics Nobel laureate and philosopher Amartya Sen has been awarded the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, organisers announced on Sunday. Sen was chosen because he had "been dealing with issues of global justice as a thought leader for decades," the jury said, adding that his contribution to the fight against social inequality was more relevant today than ever before.
