CCTV News interviewed Hunter College Professor Louise Sherby about the selection of a little-known chemical weapons watchdog, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, for the Nobel Peace Prize. Sherby explained that Nobel prizes have often had this element of surprise. “They tend to be controversial because the awards are viewed through a political lens,” said Professor Sherby, who has written a book on the topic, The Who’s Who of Nobel Prize Winners, 1901-2000.
