Asia Program Welcomes Global Fellow Christina Lamb
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is pleased to announce the appointment of journalist Christina Lamb as a Wilson Center Global Fellow.
Created in September, this non-residential fellowship program will strengthen the Wilson Center’s global network of opinion leaders by offering timely analysis and new public policy ideas to amplify the mission of the Center. The fellows will contribute to the ongoing work of the Center’s programs and be an integral part of the intellectual community of the Wilson Center.
Christina Lamb, currently with the Sunday Times, is one of Britain’s leading foreign correspondents. She has received numerous awards for her reportage, including the Prix Bayeux Calvados—one of the world’s most prestigious prizes for war correspondents—for her reporting from Afghanistan. Her postings over 20 years of foreign reporting have included Pakistan, Brazil, and South Africa. She also spent a year as a Nieman Fellow at Harvard. She has published several books, and helped Malala Yousafzai write her best seller I Am Malala.
"Christina Lamb is widely recognized as one of the best foreign affairs reporters in the business." said Asia Program director Robert M. Hathaway. "Her I Am Malala, co-written with the Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, is a moving portrait of a young girl’s heroism, and a country’s anguish. We are immensely pleased to have Christina join the Wilson Center community."
Established by an act of Congress in 1968 as a living memorial honoring President Woodrow Wilson, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars offers a nonpartisan space for the worlds of policymaking and scholarship to interact. The Center is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and is supported by both public and private funds.
