Prince Sadruddin’s Constellation of Honors

Resources on the internet summarize but a partial list of world wide honors invested on Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. Diana Miserez, author of Prince Sadruddin’s biography titled Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan: Humanitarian and Visionary, shares a more extensive list of what we would like to call the “Prince Sadruddin’s Constellation of Honors” – Constellations because what Diana shares in the biography not only includes awards, state decorations and honorary citizenships, but a long and extensive list of his service to the UN system after his term as High Commissioner – UNHCR, founding of Group Bellerive and the associated foundation that supported various important global and European initiatives, and important publications as resources and framworks in response to key global challenges of our time.

Find out more by reading the biography of Prince Sadruddin’s remarkable life, his vision not only of a global citizen but a  planetary citizen, and above all his humanism and humanitarian works around the world.
