In collaboration with the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism, International Security Studies presents a conversation with Clarissa Ward ‘02, CNN’s chief international correspondent. Ward has spent nearly two decades reporting from front lines in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt and Ukraine for CNN, ABC, CBS and Fox News.

Known for her in-depth investigations and high-profile assignments, Ward was on the ground in Ukraine as Russia began its invasion in February 2022 and has since spent more than 15 weeks crisscrossing the country to cover the war. Last year she reported from Kabul on what life is like one year after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, a story she covered live on the streets of the capital as it played out in August 2021.

A recipient of multiple journalism recognitions including nine Emmy Awards, two George Foster Peabody Awards, two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Awards, two Edward R. Murrow Awards and a George Polk Award, Ward is the author of ‘On All Fronts: The Education of a Journalist’ (Penguin Press), which details her singular career as a conflict reporter and how she has documented the violent remaking of the world from close range.
