GCSP Associate Fellow Honored with 2016 Courage in Journalism Award

The GCSP is proud to announce that one of our Associate Fellows, Ms Janine di Giovanni, has been honored with the International Women's Media Foundation's 2016 Courage in Journalism Award.

Ms di Giovanni, the Middle East Editor for Newsweek, has covered conflict zones in Syria, Iraq, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Liberia, Chechnya, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Burundi, Burkina Faso, South Africa, Guinea, Palestine, Iran, Libya, Jamaica, Pakistan, India, Yemen, and more. This award honors her sacrifice and dedication to her profession.

“Journalism is still one of the most noble professions that you could possibly do. You won’t earn a lot of money, you’ll often have great frustrations and crises along the way but it is an extraordinary field where you’re really able to shine a light into the darkest corners of the world.”
