YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 29, ARMENPRESS.  The Norwegian Nobel Institute has registered a total of 285 candidates for this year’s peace prize, of which 196 are individuals and 89 are organizations, according to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

“For comparison, the Nobel Institute received 351 valid nominations last year, distributed among 259 individuals and 92 organizations. The highest number ever was received in 2016, and was 376 candidates,” the Committee says.

The deadline for nominating candidates for the 2024 Nobel Peace Prize expired on 31 January. 

A vast group of people can submit a nomination for the prize: heads of state or politicians serving at a national level, university professors, directors of foreign policy institutes, past Nobel Prize recipients and members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

The names of the nominees and other information about the nominations cannot be revealed until 50 years later. However, those doing the nominating may choose to make it public, raising publicity both for the nominee and the proposer.

According to the Associated Press, for this year, entries include peace activists connected to the wars in Gaza and Ukraine among others.
