Nobel Peace Prize is to American Gene Sharp

On Friday October 12, the winner of the {Nobel Peace Prize} 2012 will be announced. Norwegian peace researchers believe the Nobel Committee will not make a controversial choice this time. Talking to TV2, peace research institute PRIO director Kristian Berg Harpviken even guesses who would receive this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. His candidate is the American {Gene Sharp}.

Gene Sharp has for many years worked for the resistance movements to avoid violent protests around the world. He has written numerous articles about non-violent techniques and the Arab Spring has proved Sharp’s work more visible and important, according Harpviken.

The manager of Norwegian Peace Council, Hedda Langemyr agrees with Harpviken. She also thinks the committee will go for a less controversial candidate and 84 year old Gene Sharp is highly relevant for this.
