  • "Selecting winners who are clearly not peace champions creates distrust. But the Nobel Peace Prize, as an institution, isn’t alone in this. Today, trust in leadership is also at a historic low in governments and corporations. The Nobel Peace Prize Committee is showing an example of leadership that is divisive instead of unifying. Instead of making the bold choices our world needs, it has fallen into the temptation of power and politics. It has been swayed by popularity and fame instead of standing up for the true values of the Nobel Peace Prize—Alfred Nobel’s intentions of peace and unity. As a consequence, unworthy candidates have been chosen and other, more deserving ones have been ignored." - History News Network
