CPJ Debrief With Jeffrey Gettleman

Jeffrey Gettleman, East Africa bureau chief for The New York Times, received the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for his work in Somalia and the Sudan. The Pulitzer jury cited Gettleman for his “vivid reports, often at personal peril, on famine and conflict in East Africa, a neglected but increasingly strategic part of the world.”

Gettleman will talk about reporting on Somalia, one of the most dangerous countries for journalists. Forty-one journalists have been killed there over the past two decades. Dozens of local reporters have fled into exile, while those who remain in the country continue their work at great risk.

This event is part of a new discussion series hosted by CPJ featuring frontline journalists. For more information, contact events@cpj.org.
