Nelson Mandela


Nelson Mandela was awarded the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize for his work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa. He died on 5 December 2013.

"... a shining example for the world that there are ways out of the vicious circle of violence and bitterness", Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee Francis Sejersted said in his speech at the award ceremony in Oslo, Norway.
