The Nobel Peace Prize 1911 was divided equally between Tobias Michael Carel Asser "for his role as co-founder of the Institut de droit international, initiator of the Conferences on International Private Law (Conférences de Droit international privé) at the Hague, and pioneer in the field of international legal relations" and Alfred Hermann Fried "for his effort to expose and fight what he considers to be the main cause of war, namely, the anarchy in international relations"
