The Foundation’s Board of Trustees

All candidates are chosen by the foundation’s board of trustees


Nomination of candidates

All prize winners are chosen by the foundation’s board of trustees, which makes its decisions independently. The board of trustees welcomes nominations from the general public – an individual, however, cannot nominate themselves. Nominations require a detailed explanatory statement including a description of the accomplishments and publications justifying the individual’s candidature for the Peace Prize.

The members of the Peace Prize foundation’s board of trustees are:

  • Stephan Detjen (Deutschlandradio, Berlin)
  • Prof. Ulrich Khuon (Deutsches Theater, Berlin)
  • Prof. Dr. Karl-Josef Kuschel (Eberhard-Karls-Universität, Tübingen)
  • Felicitas von Lovenberg (Frankfurt)

  • Janne Teller (New York)
  • Matthias Ulmer (Eugen Ulmer Verlag, Stuttgart)
  • Thomas Wrensch (Buchhandlung Graff, Braunschweig)
