DRØMMEN OM FRED PÅ JORDGEIR LUNDESTAD
The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded since 1901. Here you get the story of all the prize winners; the controversial, the popular, the important and the ones that many have forgotten. Humans have always dreamed of peace on earth. Alfred Nobel honored this goal of establishing the Peace Prize. Over a hundred years later, we have experienced both World War I, World War II and the Cold War. Is the dream of peace pure utopia? And has the Nobel Peace Prize made a positive contribution to world peace?
Geir Lundestad is a professor of history and has 25 years behind him as director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute. This has given him a unique overview of the price’s development from the beginning until today. It is a story about a world that has become smaller, and that has become more organized – but where peace is still more a dream than reality.
