The 2012 Nobel Peace Prize might have been awarded to the EU, but EP president Martin Schulz made very clear who the honour really belonged to: "This Nobel Peace Prize is for all EU citizens." He duly accepted the prize during the official ceremony in Oslo on behalf of everyone in the EU. You now have to chance to see your prize up close in Parlamentarium, the Parliament´s visitors centre in Brussels, where the medal will be displayed until 6 October.
The medal will be shown as part of an exhibition designed by the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo. It takes you from the Europe of the past, where conflicts were settled by war, to the Europe of today, where conflicts are resolved through negotiation and compromise. Visitors will be able to see the medal and diploma, find out how the presidents of the European institutions view Europe´s future and sign the interactive guest book.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Mr Schulz on 15 May.
