Peter Ustinov was not only world-famous for his career as a film actor. He also stood out for his social commitment. For more than 30 years he worked as a UNICEF Ambassador to improve the living conditions of children and young people. Later, he continued this commitment in his own foundation, which he founded together with his son Igor in 1999.

It was and is seldom heard in the media today that Peter Ustinov was not only an idealistic but also a political World Citizen. In the 1950s he joined the World Federalist Movement, which at that time had over 30,000 members worldwide. He was its president from 1991 until his death in 2004. Here is anobituary from March 2004 by Keith Best, Chair of the Executive Committee of WFM/IGP.
