Interesting Fact # 1270 - The Nobel Peace Prize - Podcast

Nominations for a Nobel Peace Prize can be put forward by former laureates, members of national governments and select university professors.

(Seemingly a few other people can nominate someone, but not many. It's a real "insiders club". I wonder who has the power to nominate someone for the ignoble awards - I would suggest - former losers of the Nobel awards, and members of the public, but only if they haven't been to university.)
