The Nomination Committee (NC) is responsible for providing the Peace Committee with the information they need to choose a laureate. This is done through a final report with a short list of candidates who are thoroughly researched. The NC accomplishes this task by acquiring nominations from all over the world and different contexts.
The NC comprises of six students from Norwegian institutions of higher education. They may be from all over the country, but have to be proficient in Norwegian. There is no requirement to be enrolled in specific fields of studies.
