The Nobel Peace Prize is one of several Nobel Prizes set up by Alfred Nobel in his last will and testament. The peace prize is awarded to "the person who shall 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."[1] The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded "93 times to 124 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2012, 100 individuals and 24 organizations." [2]

As Michael Parenti observed in 2012 it would be better known as "The Nobel Peace Prize for War".
