The Nobel Peace Prize 1933
Sir Norman Angell
The Nobel Peace Prize 1933 was awarded to Sir Norman Angell.
Sir Norman Angell received his Nobel Prize one year later, in 1934. During the selection process in 1933, the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided that none of the year's nominations met the criteria as outlined in the will of Alfred Nobel. According to the Nobel Foundation's statutes, the Nobel Prize can in such a case be reserved until the following year, and this statute was then applied. Sir Norman Angell therefore received his Nobel Prize for 1933 one year later, in 1934.
