The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the five Nobel Prizes; it is awarded in Norway. The other four, awarded in Sweden, are in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine and Literature. Each laureate receives a gold medal, a diploma and a quantity of money.

The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded by a committee of five persons who are chosen by the Norwegian Parliament. It has been awarded 91 times to 121 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2010. President Jimmy Carter won the award in 2002, and Nelson Mandela in 1993, together with Frederik Willem de Klerk.

“The said interest shall be divided into five equal parts, which shall be apportioned as follows: /- - -/ one part to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” (Excerpt from the will of Alfred Nobel written in 1895.) [1]
