The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize goes to human rights defenders from Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine. The award gives well-deserved recognition to the activists fighting for rights and justice on behalf of populations under siege.
Memorial, a Russian rights organization awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, has spent decades trying to force Russia to come to terms with its totalitarian past — and, in the process, illuminated the crimes of its ever more repressive present:
The thing that troubles me about talk of peace in Ukraine isn’t about the Ukrainians’ objectives, but the Russians’. It clearly seems like the war is all downhill for them from here, and despite the pretty desperate (illegal) annexations, they haven’t sued for peace. Why not?
Only 60 of the more than 900 people who have won the Nobel Prize have been women. Stacker has curated a gallery of every one.
