International Peace Bureau nomination for Nobel Peace Prize 2011
1st Feb. 2011

-- IPB today nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize the Hon. Douglas Roche O.C. (Order of Canada, former Ambassador and Senator) who has devoted his long professional life to the cause of disarmament -- notably nuclear disarmament.

Douglas-Roche

"We believe he is eminently eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize on account of the multiple outstanding roles he has played, both in the ‘official’ arenas and as a leader in a variety of civil society endeavours...as founder or co-founder of Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA), Middle Powers Initiative (MPI), and Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) – all of which have played very significant high-level roles in the global disarmament movement. Aside from existing Nobel laureates, it is hard to think of a single individual who has worked as hard for disarmament as he, and with such persistence and determination, at the top levels of world politics." (from letter to Nobel Committee).  Full details at:http://roche.apirg.org/public_html/index.html.
