2002: Former President Jimmy Carter accepts the Nobel Peace Prize. When the award was announced in October, the Nobel Committee cited Carter's efforts "to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development" through The Carter Center. Carter formed The Carter Center in 1982 to advance human rights and alleviate unnecessary human suffering. Carter is the only U.S. president to have received the prize after leaving office.
