Nobel Peace Prize Winners

List of all Nobel Peace Prize Winners since 1901

“A people free to choose will always choose peace”. Not necessarily an outlook on the world you might associate with Ronald Reagan, but it was he who said it. It’s also not far from the viewpoint of Alfred Nobel (1833-1896) – Swedish founder of all Nobel prizes which were first awarded in 1901. By the way, first of all +100 Nobel Peace Prize Winners since 1901 was Henry Dunant for his role in founding the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Nobel invented dynamite. Strange then, that he is today most famous for being the founder of The Nobel Peace Prize. His pacifist beliefs led him to hope that mutually assured destruction by weapons containing dynamite would discourage nations from ever going to war. Sadly, that didn’t go too well.
