He has also been named the recipient of the United Nations Human Rights Prize (2008), the Right Livelihood Award (2013), and the European Union Sakharov Prize (2014). In 2023, he was inducted into The Elders, a group of independent global leaders working together for peace, justice, human rights and a sustainable planet that was founded by Nelson Mandela.
