I'm still trying to figure out what this all has to do with peace.
According to the http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/
"In addition to humanitarian efforts and peace movements, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded for work in a wide range of fields including advocacy of human rights, mediation of international conflicts, and arms control".
