The 2015 Nobel Peace Prize and lawsuit against the Nobel Foundation

The Nobel Peace Prize 2015 is certainly a little step in the right direction to honour at least parts of Alfred Nobel’s will. It doesn’t violate the Will of Alfred Nobel which has happened so many times before. And it’s good that the new chairperson made explicit reference to Nobel’s… »

The Nobel Committee again ignores Nobel’s will
