Nobel Peace Prize 2010 - Nobel Peace Prize Winners – List of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates by Country

Updated on March 27, 2011

Promotion of Peace

The Nobel Peace Prize is a prize awarded annually to person or persons who have done the most and best work in promotion of peace. The prize is dictated by Alfred Nobel's will and the award is administered by the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Alfred Nobel

Alfred Nobel was a son of an engineer and inventor who specialized in constructions of bridges and buildings mostly in Sweden.  Due to the nature of his work, Nobel’s father was very interested in any science that would have made blasting of earth and rocks easier.

Peace - You Too Can Help Promote Peace.

A Very Rich Businessman

Whilst in France on training in chemical engineering, Alfred Nobel came to learn of nitroglycerine which is a highly explosive liquid. He instantly liked it because he believed it would help his father in blasting rocks for his construction business. It is from this material that he developed dynamite which he marketed very successfully worldwide for use in construction works such as blasting rock, drilling tunnels and building canals. This made Alfred Nobel a very rich businessman. When he died in 1895, he left a will where he dedicated his wealth to five Nobel Prices, namely: - Nobel Peace Prize, Nobel Prize in chemistry, Nobel Prize in Physics, Nobel Prize in Literature, Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology.

US$1,400,000 Prize Money

The First Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in 1901 and was shared between Laureates Frédéric Passy and Jean Henry Dunant, and that prize had a today’s value of about US$1,000,000. The Nobel peace prize being awarded today is slightly more than US$1,400,000.

Controversy over Laureates

The Nobel Peace Prize has over the last 110 years been won by laureates mostly in Europe, USA, South Africa and Israel. The Nobel Peace Prize is very competitive because even strong countries like Spain, Greece, Australia and China are missing in action for the last 110 years. The world’s population is more than 6.5 billion people and naturally it must be difficulty to arrive at a winner. Since the Nobel Prize is not awarded by United Nations, there would be little point for controversy and politics. The key point is for the Nobel Prize to help promote peace in the world.

You Too Can Help Promote Peace

Below is a listing of names of Nobel Peace Prize laureates by country, and by year, the Nobel Peace Prize was won. The table is sort-able by clicking on the heading. Study the table to find out how your country has been doing in this area of promoting peace. You too can be on that list if only you can help promote peace and you are found out.
