The award, named after the UAE’s founding father Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan, was founded in 2019 after Pope Francis co-signed the Document on Human Fraternity during his visit to Abu Dhabi.

“The committee looks forward to identifying the personalities and entities that have effectively contributed to finding pioneering solutions to contemporary challenges in the field of human fraternity,” Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam said in a press statement.

As well as Judge Abdelsalam, the judging committee consists of Miguel Angel Moratinos, UN Undersecretary General, Dr Epsy Campbell Barr, former Vice President of Costa Rica, Cardinal Louis Antonio Gokim Tagle, and Dr Ouided Bouchamaoui, 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
