Bajer was one of the greatest peace advocates of Scandinavia in the late 19th
century and was the first president of the International Peace Bureau. He envisioned
and worked hard to establish a centrally organized international peace movement.
The forming of the League of Nations was based on many of the ideas and principles
that he and other peace pioneers promoted. Fredrik Bajer received the Nobel Peace
Prize in 1908 for his lifetime dedication to a more peaceful world.
