HUSSAIN AGA KHAN ’92 BIO
Hussain Aga Khan was born on 10 April 1974, in Geneva, Switzerland. He received his secondary education at Deerfield Academy, Massachusetts, and graduated from Williams College, Massachusetts, with a dual degree in theatre and French literature. In 2004, he received a Master of International Affairs degree from Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs. At Columbia, Mr. Aga Khan’s main area of study was Economic and Political Development with a regional focus on the Middle East and North Africa.
He is Chair of the Board of the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat, focusing mainly on disaster risk reduction and emergency management in Central Asia, Pakistan and India. He also serves on the board of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC), and sits on the AKDN Committee, the oversight body of the Aga Khan Development Network. Involvement with the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) has centered on the management of the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan Fund for the Environment. More recently, Mr. Aga Khan joined his brother, Prince Rahim, and key directors of AKDN agencies as a member of the Environment and Climate Committee (ECC) in order to work on environmental issues and the impact of climate change in some of AKDN’s priority countries.
His photographic exhibitions, shown internationally, aim to raise awareness, inspire admiration for wildlife and therefore the desire to protect it.
