His Highness the Aga Khan to receive 2013 North-South Prize of The Council of Europe

The North-South Prize has been awarded every year since 1995 to two candidates who have stood out for their exceptional commitment to promoting North-South solidarity. The candidates, preferably a man and a woman, must have distinguished themselves in the following areas: protection of human rights, defense of pluralist democracy, public awareness raising on issues of global interdependence and solidarity, and strengthening the North-South partnership.

The North-South Prize Jury met in Strasbourg in December to select the Prize winners and the Prize ceremony will take place in Lisbon in spring 2014.
