His 2012 Capstone class won the Dr. Susan Aurelia Gitelson Award for Human Values in International Affairs for the report “Oil: Uganda’s Opportunity for Prosperity.” 

Radon participated in the constitutional peace process of Nepal and served as a drafter of the interim (2006) peace constitution, which, among other things, granted citizenship to millions of stateless people in the Terai region. In that regard, he published several op-eds to educate the public about the constitutional process and citizen’s rights: “The Constituent Assembly, a place of and for all voices,” and the “Constitution – A Living Instrument,” (Kantipur Online). In the early 1980s, Radon founded Radon Law Offices, a boutique international law firm representing international companies in corporate matters and, with respect of the extractive industry (energy and mining), exclusively advising foreign governments and public sector entities. In 1980, Radon co-founded the Afghanistan Relief Committee that sought freedom for Afghanistan and supported refugees displaced during the Afghan-Soviet war. Serving as an advisor during Estonia’s independence struggle, Radon co-authored the country’s foreign investment, mortgage/pledge, privatization and corporate laws and was an architect of Estonia’s privatization. Radon presently advises public authorities and civil society in a number of developing and emerging nations around the world.

He has written numerous articles and reports, including “Walk Tall!, A Beautiful Tomorrow For Emerging Nations, An Anthology of Inclusive Principles For National Growth and Prosperity: Equity, Rule of Law and Sustainable Natural Resource Development,” which was published in conjunction with the 2018 APEC conference in Papua New Guinea; Resolving conflicts of interest in state-owned enterprises, International Social Science Journal (UNESCO).
