2007 Compendium of Fellows' Work

Terrorism, immigration, the global economy, and health and environmental threats worldwide are the cover stories of the year. When juxtaposed with an unprecedented number of media cutbacks in the United States, journalists are increasingly challenged to cover the news in deep, meaningful ways for their community – especially news from beyond our borders.

That’s why the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is so proud of the accomplishments of its 2007 World Affairs Journalism Fellows. With sponsorship from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation and one fellowship covered by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, 12 top U.S. journalists covered essential stories for their communities in 13 countries. These fellowships draw connections between U.S. communities and other parts of the world, illustrating to Americans how what happens overseas affects them.
