Long Island University Announces 68th Annual George Polk Awards in Journalism

In The News Piece in George Polk Awards
Feb. 19, 2017

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.
