Who won the 1994 Nobel Prize for Peace?

User Avatar
Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin. I believe Tupac Shakur won it with these fellows as well. In this year Tupac was shot 5 times and survived and he was set up by his best friends Puff Daddy, Biggie, and Martin Luther King. However he did not retaliate, instead he made a song about love and peace and that is how he received the Nobel Peace Prize

Who initiated the Nobel Peace Prize and for which reasons?

User Avatar
The Nobel Peace Prize was created by Alfred Nobel. It's one of five Nobel prizes and has been awarded since 1901 to those who have "done the most or best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and the holding and promotion of peace congresses." Nobel died in 1896 and left instructions for the prize in his will, but did not specify why he chose peace as a prize category.
