Nobel Peace Prize 2016

THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FOR 2016

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016 to


Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos


for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50-year-long civil war to an end, a war that has cost the lives of at least 220 000 Colombians and displaced close to six million people.

The award should also be seen as a tribute to the Colombian people who, despite great hardships and abuses, have not given up hope of a just peace, and to all the parties who have contributed to the peace process. This tribute is paid, not least, to the representatives of the countless victims of the civil war.

President Santos initiated the negotiations that culminated in the peace accord between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrillas, and he has consistently sought to move the peace process forward. Well knowing that the accord was controversial, he was instrumental in ensuring that Colombian voters were able to voice their opinion concerning the peace accord in a referendum. The outcome of the vote was not what President Santos wanted: a narrow majority of the over 13 million Colombians who cast their ballots said no to the accord. This result has created great uncertainty as to the future of Colombia. There is a real danger that the peace process will come to a halt and that civil war will flare up again. This makes it even more important that the parties, headed by President Santos and FARC guerrilla leader Rodrigo Londoño, continue to respect the ceasefire.

The fact that a majority of the voters said no to the peace accord does not necessarily mean that the peace process is dead. The referendum was not a vote for or against peace. What the "No" side rejected was not the desire for peace, but a specific peace agreement. The Norwegian Nobel Committee emphasizes the importance of the fact that President Santos is now inviting all parties to participate in a broad-based national dialogue aimed at advancing the peace process. Even those who opposed the peace accord have welcomed such a dialogue. The Nobel Committee hopes that all parties will take their share of responsibility and participate constructively in the upcoming peace talks.

Striking a balance between the need for national reconciliation and ensuring justice for the victims will be a particularly difficult challenge. There are no simple answers to how this should be accomplished. An important feature of the Colombian peace process so far has been the participation of representatives of civil war victims. Witnessing the courage and will of the victims’ representatives to testify about atrocities, and to confront the perpetrators from every side of the conflict, has made a profound impression.

By awarding this year’s Peace Prize to President Juan Manuel Santos, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to encourage all those who are striving to achieve peace, reconciliation and justice in Colombia. The president himself has made it clear that he will continue to work for peace right up until his very last day in office. The Committee hopes that the Peace Prize will give him strength to succeed in this demanding task. Furthermore, it is the Committee’s hope that in the years to come the Colombian people will reap the fruits of the ongoing peace and reconciliation process. Only then will the country be able to address effectively major challenges such as poverty, social injustice and drug-related crime.

The civil war in Colombia is one of the longest civil wars in modern times and the sole remaining armed conflict in the Americas. It is the Norwegian Nobel Committee’s firm belief that President Santos, despite the "No" majority vote in the referendum, has brought the bloody conflict significantly closer to a peaceful solution, and that much of the groundwork has been laid for both the verifiable disarmament of the FARC guerrillas and a historic process of national fraternity and reconciliation. His endeavors to promote peace thus fulfil the criteria and spirit of Alfred Nobel’s will.

Oslo. 07.10.2016
Announcement | Nobels fredspris

The Nobel Peace Prize 2016 will be awarded in Oslo on Saturday, December 10, 2016.

That's a mighty long table stretching from Norway (Nobel peace prize) to Sweden (where Sofia is)

I think i understand what you're implying, but seriously, there are other princesses who had less of an education than Sofia, so I'm sure the conversation will not be a problem..

NRK1 sent live from 12:30 to 15:25 and from 18:30 to 19:00. TV2 News Channel has sent live throughout the day.

Watch the NRK broadcast here:

See the audience at the palace at 16:50 in this video:
https://tv.nrk.no/serie/nyheter/NNFA41019917/10-12-2017

See the Royal Family arrive in the King's new state car (always called A-2) at 07:30, see the royal procession into the beautiful Rådhushallen (the Main Hall) in Oslo City Hall at 10:00, and see the royal procession out of the Main Hall at 01:35:00 in this video:
https://tv.nrk.no/serie/nobels-freds...017/10-12-2017

See the Royal Family leave Oslo City Hall at 00:20 in this video:
https://tv.nrk.no/serie/nyheter/NNFA41020017/10-12-2017

There are already hundreds of photos from NTB Scanpix, but if I put them up as a gallery, then posters here (because they don't have a subscription) will not be able to see them, and I don't have time to post one and one. But I think NTB Scanpix will put up a gallery themselves - they did it in previous years (including last year), and if they does, then I will post a link.

Here are two photos of the Queen tonight:
