|Profession:||Veteran peace advocate. Honorary secretary of the Permanent International Peace Bureau.|
|Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize 1902|
|Motivation:||Ducommun was the unpaid leader of the Permanent International Peace Bureau, and his work was therefore closely connected to it.

Ducommun advocated a pragmatic and practical approach to peace work, and he promoted international arbitration.|
|Profession:||President of the Swiss Confederacy|
|Comments:||Lacheval fully supported Henri Morel's nomination, and he especially recommended Élie Ducommun as a worthy recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.|
