Despite a year seemingly filled with gloom and near constant reminders of humanity’s failings, the Nobel Peace prize will reward a person, or organisation, who’s worked tirelessly for peace despite the world’s many hurdles.
The prize is notoriously divisive and is known as much for those who didn’t win as for those who did.
Last year, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) became the surprise winner awarded for its mission to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stocks and 16 years of wider global efforts.
Who would you like to see nominated this year?
