The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the Nobel Prizes. It is to be awarded annually to those who have "done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".

Criticisms

There are numerous criticisms of the choices made when awarding the prize. Some examples include rewarding terrorists and war aggressors if they later participate in peace negotiations, awarding for widely publicized recent events with uncertain long-term outcomes, the award being given as "encouragement" for hoped for future achievements, and awarding for not peace related activities not mentioned in Nobel's will.

There are many Nobel Peace Prize awards that are criticized even in politically correct sources. See the "External links" section. Less politically correct is to criticize Nobel Peace Prize winners such as Nelson Mandela and Elie Wiesel.
