Motivation

In a press release, the Committee indicated that it had chosen the combination of a Hindu and a Muslim, and of an Indian and a Pakistani, on purpose, because they "join in a common struggle for education and against extremism". They stressed that "fraternity between nations" was one of the original criteria stipulated by Alfred Nobel.[3]

The usage of child labour and discrimination against female education was the citation for the award. As of 2014 it is reckoned 168 million children are used for child labour, 60 million in India alone. This was mentioned by Thorbjørn Jagland in his handover ceremony speech.

Nominations

The Nobel Prize Committee announced that it had received a record number of 278 different nominations for the Peace Prize, up from 259 in 2013. 47 of these nominations were for organizations.[4]

Favourites

Prior to the announcement, many news media speculated about who would win this year, providing lists of favourites. Often cited were Pope Francis,[5][6][7] Ban Ki-moon,[6] Chelsea Manning,[5] Denis Mukwege,[6][5][7] Edward Snowden,[6][5][7] José Mujica,[6] the Novaya Gazeta newspaper,[6][7] and the so-called Japanese people who conserve Article 9,[6][7] together with the eventual winner Malala Yousafzai.[5][6][7] The other winner, Kailash Satyarthi, was not among the commonly cited favourites.
