Alfred Nobel wrote in his will that the Nobel Peace Prize should be awarded to people who had worked for ‘abolishment or reduction of standing armies’. Since then, many people and organisations have been awarded the Nobel Prize for their work towards disarmament. The latest is ICAN (International Campaign for the Abolishment of Nuclear Weapons). We welcome the general secretary of ICAN, Beatrice Fihn, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo on 10 December 2017. She will tell us about ICAN’s work in a talk with Carin Klaesson.
