In November 2012 the European community was awarded the highest honor – The European Union received the Nobel Peace Prize. Adoption of such solutions Norwegian committee to award the Nobel Prize highly appreciated the contribution of the EU to strengthen the peace of Europe. December 10, 2012 in Oslo, came for the premium: Herman Van Rompuy – President of the European Council, Jose Manuel Durao Barroso – European Commission President, and Martin Schulz – President of the European Parliament.
Is the EU deserve this award? Yes – said the EU itself. No! – I think more than 50% of the respondents of ordinary people in Russia.
Dr Henning Meyer,Senior Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Editor of Social Europe Journal believes that the EU has earned the award, but it was still a lot of Poble in the Union.
A human rights activist from Germany Dmitrij Adamow believes that:
- Award in the entire European Union, I believe deserved. But if we take every European country alone or each individual policy in Europe, no one deserves awards. It’s like in sports: a highly rated sports team with a low rating of each member of the team.
Nobel Prize for the economic crisis in Europe, against human rights violations in the same Germany, France, it seems to me, can be seen as an incentive prize for lifting the spirit and nothing more. And Mr. Adamow, I think, is absolutely right. Each European country alone is not worthy of this award.
