PRIO Directors have made it a tradition to offer their personal shortlists for the Nobel Peace Prize, based on their professional assessments. With the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize announcement approaching, Henrik Urdal is releasing his final and revised Nobel Shortlist for the year.

This year, the list is topped by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), and highlights other themes like democracy, human rights, and climate change.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate will be announced, as per usual, on the Friday of the first full week of October.
