|Motivation:||Ducommun was the unpaid leader of the Permanent International Peace Bureau, and his work was therefore closely connected to it. He actively started working for peace in 1867 when he participated at the foundation of Ligue de la Paix et de la Liberté. Ducommun advocated a pragmatic and practical approach to peace work, and he promoted international arbitration. The Peace Bureau organized peace conferences, and it collected and published peace literature. It was the heart of the European peace movement, and it co-ordinated the activities of the various national and non-governmental peace organizations.|
|Profession:||Lawyer. Member of the Commission of the Permanent International Peace Bureau.|
|Comments:||Arnaud suggested the two nominees as two independent candidates. His subsidiary suggestion was an equally divided prize between the two nominees.|
