A talk by Graeme Smith, Globe and Mail correspondent in Afghanistan.
Registration is not required. This event will be in English.
Graeme Smith has devoted more time to southern Afghanistan than any other Western journalist, since the arrival of NATO forces in that region. Hired by The Globe and Mail in 2001, the war in southern Afghanistan became his full-time project in mid-2006. His awards include the Canadian Association of Journalists’ prize for investigations; the Amnesty International award for Canadian print journalism; the National Newspaper Award for international reporting; and the 2007 Michener Award. He is working on a book about Afghanistan.
This event is part of CIPS programming on Afghanistan.
