Hollande to receive Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize

This is hilarious: “The Felix-Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize—created in 1989—is intended to honour living individuals and active public or private bodies or institutions that have made a significant contribution to promoting, seeking, safeguarding or maintaining peace, in conformity with the Charter of the United Nations and the Constitution of UNESCO.” How would Hollande be awarded such a Prize when his intervention in Mali wasn't authorized by the Security Council, and thus not in conformity with the UN Charter?
