ICAN wins Nobel Peace Prize 2017

ICAN

Oslo: The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.

ICAN is a coalition of non-governmental organizations from around 100 different countries around the globe. It has played a crucial role as a leading civil society actor in the effort to achieve a prohibition of nuclear weapons under international law.

The Nobel Peace Prize, worth nine million Swedish crowns ($1.10 million), will be presented in Oslo, Norway on December 10.

While giving away the award, the Nobel Committee emphasises that the next steps towards attaining a world free of nuclear weapons must involve the nuclear-armed states.

In July, 122 nations adopted a UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, but nuclear-armed states including the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France stayed out of the talks.
