The Nobel Peace Prize and the Laureates

The Meaning and Acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize in the Prize Winner's Countries

Karl Holl and Anne C. Kjelling

The articles which are published in this volume investigate, on the basis of selected cases of mainly European winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, the meaning of the Prize and the award in the Prize winner's own countries. The case studies, which are mainly of a biographical nature, offer a varied picture with regard to the reactions of public opinion in the respective countries. They consent, however, in so far as the immediate impact of the award was only limited and of short duration.
