Nearly all living winners of the Nobel Peace Prize will discuss post-Cold War international relations at a special seminar next year, the Norwegian Nobel Institute said Thursday.
A total of 21 former peace prize winners had agreed to come to Norway in December 1991 and talk about "Beyond the Cold War: New Dimensions in International Relations," said institute director Geir Lundestad.The gathering will celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Nobel awards.
Other special events to mark the anniversary of the prizes, covering Literature, Chemistry, Physics, Medicine and Economics, would be held in Stockholm, home of these awards.
The prizes, established by Alfred Nobel, Swedish inventor of dynamite, were first awarded in 1901.
Four winners have declined the invitation. Two of them, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, got their prizes for controversial peace agreements in Vietnam and the Middle East.
