2011 Nobel Peace Prize the Contenders

1.Aung San Suu Kyi(Burma,Myanmar) 2.Julian Assange(WikiLeaks editor) 3.Lina Ben Mhenni(Tunis) 4.Memorial(Russia) 5.Helmut Kohl(German) 6.Israa Abdel-Fattah(Egyptian) 7.Wael Ghonim(Egyptian) 8.Sima Samar(Afghanistan) 9.Private Bradley Manning(US soldier).

Aung San Suu Kyi has already won the Nobel peace prize, 20 years ago. Then, however, the Burmese political activist was under house arrest in Rangoon and unable to attend the award ceremony in Oslo. Now, with rapid political changes in Burma, is it possible that one of the most famous pro-democracy campaigners might pick up a second award, this time in person?

No individual has ever won the award twice, but two organisations - the red cross and the UNHCR - have been awarded the peace prize more than once.

Aung San Suu Kyi is the daughter of General Aung San, one of the principal leaders of Burma's struggle for independence who was assassinated by political rivals in 1947 when she was a toddler. Educated in Delhi and Oxford, she has been a political activist since returning to her native land to look after her sick mother in 1988, a year of massive political upheavals.

Aung San Suu Kyi, charismatic, determined and striking, led mass demonstrations calling for democracy. She could not, she said, stand aside and watch. But the military junta brutally repressed all opposition. Despite the crackdown and their leader's house arrest, Aung San Suu Kyi's party, the National League for Democracy, won elections in 1990. The poll was, however, cancelled by the military rulers.

The Nobel prize rewarded "her unflagging efforts" and aimed to show "support for the many people throughout the world who are striving to attain democracy, human rights and ethnic conciliation by peaceful means".

Internationally famous, Aung San Suu Kyi was to remain confined to her home for 15 of the following 20 years. Last November, days after the party backed by the military authorities had won the first elections for two decades, Aung San Suu Kyi was released. Sidelined from the polls themselves, Aung San Suu Kyi has since maintained a sceptical stance, urging the international community to watch the small signs of reform in Burma closely for any sign of backsliding.

Last year, the Norwegian Nobel Committee sparked a minor diplomatic row when it awarded the prize to Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo; in 2009 it was no less provocative when it selected Barack Obama before the US president had even completed a year in office.

In 2011, arguably the most eventful year of the century so far, the committee has no shortage of candidates. But will it opt for safe, deserving cases such as a protagonist from the Arab spring, one of the perennial nominees like Helmut Kohl, or something more mischievous like the leading actors in the WikiLeaks revelations.
