The 2005 Nobel Peace Prize

by Scott London

Back from another rich and stimulating week in Norway where I took part in the annual Nobel Peace Prize celebrations, this time honoring the International Atomic Energy Agency and its director general Mohamed ElBaradei. This year’s events lacked some of the excitement of 2002 when Jimmy Carter got the prize and it paled in comparison with the festivities of 2001 when over a dozen Nobel laureates gathered in Oslo for the 100th anniversary of the prize and when the award was handed out to Kofi Annan and the United Nations. Still, it was a good and interesting time with many special highlights. My photo essay from Nobel Days 2005 is available¬†here.
