AWARD HONORED WORK: “The Hell After ISIS”

AWARD SPONSOR: Ford Motor Company

Anand Gopal’s “The Hell After ISIS” is a beautifully written account of the consequences of war. His narrative, based on 13 months of reporting, recounts the suffering of one Sunni family in Iraq, fleeing ISIS jihadists only to fall prey to unforgiving Shia militias. Gopal was detained and expelled from Iraq, but managed to return to complete this compelling narrative that sheds light on both the rise of ISIS and the global refugee crisis.
