The European Union awarded 2012 Nobel Peace Prize
“The stabilizing part played by the European Union has helped to transform a once-torn Europe from a continent of war to a continent of peace” — Nobel committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland.
“We must never forget that, at its origins, the European Union brought together nations emerging from the ruins of the devastating Second World War and united them in a project for peace … The Nobel peace prize council, and in fact the international community, are now sending a very important message to Europe — that the European Union is something very precious, that we should cherish it.” — European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso
