The actress is a special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and co-founded the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) in 2012.

The award was first announced in June during the week when Angelina Jolie was co-chairing the End Sexual Violence in Conflict (ESVC) global summit in London with then foreign secretary William Hague.

Angelina Jolie said at the time that it meant “a great deal… to receive an honor related to foreign policy”.
