Henri La Fontaine, a prominent 20th-century pacifist born in Brussels, was the first socialist to win the Nobel Peace Prize. He began as a lawyer, advocating for women's rights, equality, and universal suffrage. An authority in international law, he taught for nearly five decades, founded international cooperation organizations, and ventured into politics, serving in the Belgian Senate.
La Fontaine's enduring legacy lies in his dedication to international peace, notably as President of the International Peace Bureau for 36 years, and his advocacy for an international court of justice, though he didn't witness its establishment.
