Hazar Imam's Remarks upon receiving the Rockefeller Leadership Award 2012-10-22

Watch this video!

Thank you so much

As I have done my work, over the past decades, I’ve concluded that one of the most important forces in development is civil society. If you think about the countries around the world which have had fragile governments but which have still made progress, there are umpteen examples of countries which have made progress, because they have had strong civil society.

Speech by Prince Sadrudin UN High Commissioner for Refugees, at the European Consultative Meeting, 1968-04-01

Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan

Mr. Chairman,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I assumed office as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees at the beginning of this year. One of the first tasks to which I had to turn my attention was the problem faced by European governments with regard to the increased number of refugees and asylum-seekers moving into European States. One aspect of this phenomenon has been the fact that, in recent years, the majority of asylum-seekers entering Europe are from non-European countries far away from the region.

Islam – A Liberating Force

Speech by Prince Aly S. Khan to The Council of Islamic Affairs, New York
May 27, 1958

It is one of the paradoxes of history that the West, and the Islamic world which have so many beliefs and values in common, should have lived in antagonism for centuries. When we consider the great contribution of the Islamic peoples to modern Western civilization, particularly in the realm of scientific enquiry, philosophic thought and mysticism, wherein the religious spirit is lifted to the sublime, the paradox of conflict becomes all the more striking
