In fact, the Nobel fortune came from chemical inventions and the peaceful uses of explosives, such as engineering projects, railways, canals, and road building. The idea for the Nobel Peace Prize actually emerged in Paris in the 1880s, where the Swedish industrialist met the Baroness Bertha von Suttner, a well-known supporter of international peace efforts. Von Suttner nurtured Nobel's interests in world peace and suggested he fund an annual prize for peace work. The first Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in 1901, five years afterNobel's death. It went to two men: Henri Dunant of Switzerland, oneof the founders of the International Committee of the Red Cross; and Frédéric Passy of France, the organizer of several international peace groups and a supporter of peaceful arbitration between governments. The most recent prize, awarded in 1998, was given to John Hume and David Trimble for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the long conflict in Northern Ireland.

Extractions: To mark the centennial of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Swedish Red Cross (SRC) organized its own celebrations in Stockholm last week, by inviting former Nobel laureates to participate in a session on "Peace, in theory and in practice". Together with students from the Red Cross College of Gripsholm, SRC staff were given the opportunity to meet and discuss peace and the role of the Red Cross in the world, with Cora Weiss, Secretary General of the International Peace Bureau, Mary Ellen McNish, who represents the American Friends Service Committee and Jody Willams, initiator of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. Cora Weiss challenged the Red Cross Movement on three issues : to promote a wider representation of women, to add new elements to International Humanitarian Law and to integrate peace education in all subjects and at all levels of the educational system. "The most important thing is to teach children that there are alternatives to violence", she said. Mary Ellen McNish emphasised the importance of co-operation between different organisations and interest groups.

Extractions: Against Iraq [Minute 2000-06-04] Approved at Corvallis, Oregon, July 23, 2000 by the North Pacific Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) We, the North Pacific Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), are united in the spirit of peace and justice. Therefore we oppose the devastating economic sanctions against Iraq and the unrelenting bombing of that nation, which have been led by the U.S. government. Our call to end the sanctions and bombing grows out of our Friends' testimony that there is that of God in every person. According to UNICEF's best estimate, the sanctions have already caused the deaths of a million Iraqis, many of them children, and continue to cause death and extreme hardship. The two most recent U.N. Coordinators of Humanitarian Relief Operations in Iraq, Denis Halliday and Hans von Sponeck, resigned to protest the inadequacy of the relief effort and to call for lifting the sanctions. The words of Máiread Corrigan Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, challenge us: "The next generation will ask us, 'What were you doing when the children of Iraq were dying?'" We urge our government and the United Nations to end bombing and economic sanctions and to take alternative courses of action. These could include reopening a U.S. dialogue with the Iraqi government, encouraging citizen diplomacy, and helping rebuild the civilian infrastructure.
