The major reason for the Nobel Prize committee for not selecting Hawking for a Nobel peace prize was the fact that even though his theories were scientifically and mathematically sound but they were still unproven. The Nobel Prize committee only gives out its award once a theory has been proven.
The Nobel committee looks for proof, not big ideas. Hawking was a deep thinker — a theorist — and his musings about black holes and cosmology have yet to get the lockdown evidence that accompanies the physics prizes, his fellow scientists said. “The Nobel Prize is not given to the smartest person or ...

“We'd been waiting for four-and-a-half years for (relations) to normalize between Norway and China,” Brattvoll said, and they finally did last spring, ending a diplomatic freeze that began in 2010 when the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to Chinese dissident and human rights ...
But it would be the worst kind of precedent for a Nobel committee to reward Trump's bullying with the highest honor. Giving Trump the Nobel would be comparable to Patty Hearst switching sides, taking up a gun, and mouthing the slogans of her captors. In any case, peace on the Korean peninsula depends ...
Other countries are reluctant to directly intervene in the utterly inhumane treatment that Myanmar is perpetrating against the Rohingya, but we could perhaps bring worldwide shame upon her and her government by petitioning the Nobel Committee to revoke her prize. It has never been done, but perhaps it ...
In this Feb. 28, 2018 photo, President Donald Trump pauses during a meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House, in Washington, with members of congress to discuss school and community safety. A White House official says President Donald Trump plans to announce Thursday whether he'll impose tariffs or quotas ...

If the Nobel Committee is committed to celebrating peace, then it will award the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize to one of the most principled and dedicated statesmen, activists and champions of human rights of this generation: Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah. Historically, the prize has been ...
Peace Prize nominations are collected by the Norwegian Nobel Committee — all other Nobel prizes are awarded in Sweden. Peace Prize nominations are due by Jan. 31 each year, and the award is announced in October. The committee keeps the names of nominators secret for 50 years, unless they ...
Geir Lundestad, predecessor of the present director of the Nobel Institute and former secretary of the Nobel Committee, said he wasn't concerned about the fake nomination. "This happens very rarely, and if that happens then it does not matter. Those who nominate candidates considered relevant are ...
“We believe we can take the fight several steps in the right direction before the Nobel Committee announces its decision in October, regardless of whether the BDS campaign is actually awarded or not,” he explained. Moxnes said he has received hundreds of messages of support since the nomination.

Too many men and too few women winning the Nobel Prize is a problem - at least for the Nobel Foundation and the committees responsible for awarding the prizes, who are poised to challenge the procedures in order to increase gender diversity among laureates. Following last year's Nobel Prize cohort, ...
In a controversial move, a conservative Norwegian party said Wednesday it is considering former NATO secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen as its choice to sit on the committee which awards the Nobel Peace Prize. The anti-immigration Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet, FrP) said the former Danish ...
But a majority of the other parties in parliament vehemently objected to his candidacy. Claiming that they wanted to underline the Nobel committee's independence from the state, the parties this week hastily adopted a rule barring members of parliament and their substitutes from sitting on the committee.
“[Hagen joining the committee] would place the Nobel Committee in a hopeless situation and the Committee will no longer be an independent institution,” Ytterhorn said to NRK of Hagen's nomination to the committee which chooses the annual Nobel Peace Prize winner. “If Hagen is selected then the ...
The last Nobel Prize of 2017, in economics sciences, was awarded to Richard Thaler “for contributions to behavioral economics.” All six prizes given to individuals this year have gone to men, apart from the Nobel Peace Prize which was awarded to a coalition of 100-plus NGOs from around the world.
As President Donald Trump gets ready to “decertify” the Iran deal and continues to spar with “Little Rocket Man” over North Korea's missile program, the Norwegian Nobel Committee seems to be sending a not-so-subtle message about nuclear weapons. This year, the committee awarded the Nobel Peace ...
The Catholic association L'Œuvre d'Orient put forward his candidacy in late January, which the Norwegian Nobel Committee accepted. The nomination is backed by a number of people in Iraq and around the world, especially in France where the archbishop has developed strong ties of friendship and ...
She said it was a proud day for Pakistan. After she recovered, Yousafzai returned to campaigning for girls' education. She has spoken at the United Nations, established the Malala Fund, written a book, and taken other action to support the cause. In 2014, the Nobel Committee presented her with its highest ...
