How Does the Nobel Peace Prize Work?

So how does somebody even win a Nobel Peace Prize? Ted-Ed delves into the history of the award (how it is one of the five prizes created by Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite), the nomination process (a bunch of people can nominate somebody including past laureates, university professors, member of governments, and others), and the standards they use to judge the nominees: disarmament, peace congresses, brotherhood between nations, human rights, and peace negotiations.

Sure there are politics wrapped up in the award but the Nobel Peace Prize is still probably one of the best awards a human of this Earth can ever get for, like, being a good person. Learn more about it and maybe snag one yourself in this lifetime in the video below.
