UNHCR’s Grandi possible contender for Nobel Peace Prize

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, is among the contenders for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, for his work trying to improve conditions for refugees throughout the world. Grandi has focused on speaking out for the Rohingyas in the Rakhine province in Myanmar, urging the de-facto head of state in Myanmar to act on the situation. On a visit to Sudan, Grandi called on warring parties, regional states and the international community to look for urgent ways to find peace.
