Nobel Peace Prize 2020: Who will be ‘awarded the prestigious honour’ this year?



The Nobel Peace Prize makes its return at the end of the year, but nominations must be submitted by the end of this month.

The prize is given to persons who help establish positive relationships between nations, those who reduce standing armies or hold and promote peace congresses.

It’s one of the five Nobel Prizes from the will of Swedish inventor and industrialist Alfred Nobel. As well as the Peace Prize, there is the Chemistry, Physics, Medicine and Literature Prizes.

There are, however, major restrictions surrounding even the nominations for the award. Namely, the disclosure of information about the nominations is unavailable both publicly and privately for 50 years.

The restriction also concerns opinions related to the prize. The deadline for nominations is February 1, with the names then drawn up at the first Nobel Committee meeting after the deadline.

That Committee then draw up a list of potential candidates for more thorough consideration, typically containing 20 to 30 names.

Despite the limitations, several world leaders are potentially in line to scoop the award.

United States President Donald Trump is one such leader. He is currently battling it out for another run at the presidency, but would welcome the prize after receiving much criticism throughout his current tenure.

Trump is available at 14/1 to be the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize winner.

His Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin is available at 33/1, with Kim Jong-Un an outsider at 60/1.

France president Emmanuel Macron is 35/1.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson also finds himself at 35/1.

There are, however, perhaps more suitable names on the potential list of candidates.

17-year-old Greta Thunberg is favourite for the honour for her actions throughout the past year. The environmental activist is currently 5/6 to receive the next Nobel Peace Prize.

Following closely behind is New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. She is 17/10 win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Paris-based Reporters Without Borders are also reportedly in contention. The non-profit organisation conducts political advocacy on issues relating to freedom of the press. It’s currently 7/1 for Reporters Without Borders to receive the prize in 2020.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is another potential recipient. The United Nations agency protects refugees and stateless people, and is currently 17/2 to receive the honour at the end of the year.

Another potential winner of the prize is former First Lady of the US Michelle Obama. Her husband Barack Obama was the recipient of the prestigious award in 2009. And Michelle is now available at 55/1 to receive it 11 years later.

The Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony will take place on December 10 in Oslo, Norway.
