Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Peace prize, unlike the other Nobels (and the not-quite-Nobel), is awarded by the Norwegian parliament, not the Swedish Academy. So it's not likely to break with Norwegian foreign policy or antagonise regimes that Norway considers allies.
