    • warsaw-2013Nobel peace laureates’ statement: nuclear abolition is a humanitarian imperative

      24/10/2013

      Nuclear weapons are an existential threat to humanity, and must never be used again, under any circumstances. We therefore welcome the recent shift in the international discourse about nuclear weapons towards the recognition by a number of States that the catastrophic and irremediable consequences of the use of nuclear weapons require decisive action to outlaw and eliminate them.

    • Warsaw - around the city

    Since 1999, at each annual World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, a Committee made up of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates presents a Peace Summit Award. The Award is presented to personalities from the world of culture and entertainment who actively stand up for peace and make broader audiences aware of issues in the contemporary world. The initiator of the Award was Mikhail Gorbachev, himself Laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990.

    Recipients of the award over the years have included singers, actors and even a football player. Musician Peter Gabriel was honoured with the Award for his commitment in his artistic activity against violations of human rights and his firm stance against violence and war, like in his song “Biko” in which he sang about Steve Biko, an anti-apartheid activist in South Africa, killed in 1977.

    Among musicians acknowledged for their advocacy of peace, there is also Bono, lead singer of the Irish rock band U2, honoured for his engagement in the cancellation of debt in third world countries. Singer Annie Lennox, known for her musical work with the Eurythmics, was recognised for her work against the HIV pandemic in South Africa. Other musicians whose charitable activities have been honoured include Cat Stevens and Bob Geldof, organisers of the “Live Aid” and “Live8” concerts.
