With the 2014 Nobel Prize announcements around the corner, Norway is considering shaking up the five-member committee that selects the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Critics say the prestigious panel should no longer be limited to retired Norwegian politicians and have suggested broadening the pool of potential judges to people from other walks of life and even non-Norwegians. Any future changes wouldn’t affect this year’s winner, to be announced Oct. 10, 2014 by chairman Thorbjorn Jagland, but could influence next year’s award as Jagland and two other members are up for re-election.
