Media Outlet: George Polk Awards

International Security fellow Anand Gopal received a 2016 Polk Award for his piece in The Atlantic:

The award for Magazine Reporting will go to Anand Gopal for "The Hell After ISIS,” a wrenching 9,000-word account in the May 2016 issue of The Atlantic describing the travails of one Iraqi family caught in the crossfire between Islamic State terrorists and U.S.-backed forces. Exposing grave human rights violations on both sides, the article came after nearly two years of reporting on Sunnis in Iraq, often overcoming official resistance to Gopal’s presence.

Anand Gopal is a fellow with the International Security Program at New America.
