The Norwegian Committee awards this Friday the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 2023. Among the candidates to receive the award are, among others, two women's rights activists, the Iranian Narges Mohammadi and the Afghan Mahbouba Seraj; the indigenists Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, from the Philippines, and Juan Carlos Jintiach, from Ecuador; the United Nations International Court of Justice; the Burmese ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun and the Myanmar National Unity Consultative Council, and the American organization Human Rights Data Analysis Group. The ruling will be broadcast live from Oslo, the Norwegian capital, starting at 11:00.

Last year, this recognition for the fight for peace went to the director of the Belarusian NGO Viasná, Ales Bialiatski; the Russian Memorial Foundation, already liquidated by the Kremlin and Russian justice at the end of 2021, and the Ukrainian Center for Civil Liberties. In more than 120 years of history, the Nobel Peace Prize has awarded 110 people (18 of them women) and 27 organizations. No Spaniard has won it, but five Latin Americans have: the Argentine Adolfo Pérez Esquivel (1980), the Mexican Alfonso García Robles (1982), the Costa Rican Óscar Arias (1987), the Guatemalan Rigoberta Menchú (1992) and the Colombian Juan Manuel Santos (2016).

This Nobel Prize is the only one of the six awards that are awarded and awarded outside of Sweden at the express wish of the creator of the prizes, the Swedish magnate Alfred Nobel, because, at his time, Norway was part of the neighboring country.
