Statement on behalf of the Man Booker International Prize

Statement on behalf of the Man Booker International Prize

Following correspondence with stakeholders and additional guidance on the appropriate terminology from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, changes have been made to the Man Booker International Prize materials.

The country/territory of longlisted authors and translators appears, and Wu Ming-Yi is listed as ‘Taiwan’.

The prize is not about defining nationality; all global citizens are eligible, provided they are published in translation in the UK.
