H.E. Emomali Rahmon -President of Tajikistan- LEADER OF XXI CENTURY AWARD   

According to 2000 decision of Academic Board of European Council on International Relation  the Prize should be awarded under considerations as :   This title will be  seldom awarded and only after a very carefully examination, as the receivers will be leaders of the century, there work all thou concentrated in a year will have to reflect decades of actions and achievements with positive influence over peoples and countries.

Extremely important it was decided in order to avoid controversy (such the highly controversial Nobel Prize for Peace being awarded to Henry Kissinger or to Barrack Obama in 2009 or to a Chinese dissident in 2010 etc.)   that the title will not be awarded on yearly bases but only when suitable candidature will be presented . 

Among the reasons for awarding this title the Academic Board should have under consideration : the promotion of a free and open society in the recipient country and his/here support for an open society in the world, the creation of an economic social balanced climate destined to offer to everybody a chance in social participation and inclusion , the attention played to human rights such as dignity of life, right to education, to home , to medical assistance , political participation . Also the awarding committee should weight the receiver commitment to direct democracy and social and economic development issues and also the international status of the receiver as a supporter of peace, multilateralism and equilibrium in international relations arena and a lofty personality.
