Belarus activist Ales Bialiatski, gets Nobel Peace Prize.

Human rights advocate Ales Bialiatski from Belarus, the Russian human rights organisation Memorial, and the Ukrainian human rights organisation Center for Civil Liberties are being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2022, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced on October 7, 2022.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureates represent civil society in their home countries. They have for many years promoted the right to criticise power and protect the fundamental rights of citizens.

They have made an outstanding effort to document war crimes, human right abuses and the abuse of power.

Together they demonstrate the significance of civil society for peace and democracy, the academy said.
