  • “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I well defend to their death, your right to say it.”

  • Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai

  • and Indian children's right activist Kailash Satyarthi, won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize

  • on Friday. Malala, a former Sakharov Prize winner, came

  • under the spotlight after she was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for defending

  • better rights for girls, in Pakistan. At 17, she has become the youngest ever Nobel Prize

  • winner. The EU, who won the award in 2012, congratulated

  • the winners and urged world leaders to increase their fight for children's access to education.

  • We are delighted for Malala, who so courageously stood up for her rights and paid a high price

  • for something that many in our countries take for granted.

  • In recognition of her fight for equal access to education, Malala was also awarded the Sakharov prize in 2013, joining former winners

  • such as Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi. 'Let us change the ideology of being powerful,

  • the powerful countries shall not be judged by counting their soldiers and navy, but rather

  • we must see which country has the higher literacy rate, which country has more educated people,

  • which country has provided their basic rights to citizens.'

  • Despite going through one of the worst crises

  • in decades and repeated scenes of social unrest across the continent, the European Union won

  • the Nobel peace prize in 2012. The Norwegian prize committee awarded the

  • 27-nation bloc for its 60 years of contributions to peace and reconciliation, democracy and

  • human rights in Europe. The Nobel peace prize is worth 1 million euros

  • and will be handed out on December 10th in Norway.

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I well defend to their death, your right to say it.”
