    Clarissa Ward

    “Syria and the Western Jihadi: Tales from the Front”

    Foreign Correspondent Clarissa Ward is among the most intrepid, fearless and recognized international journalists of our time.

    Clarissa Ward is a senior international correspondent based in CNN’s London bureau. For more than a decade Ward has reported from front lines across the world. She has won multiple awards for her reporting including a George Foster Peabody Award, an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Award, four Emmy Awards, an Edward R. Murrow Award for distinguished journalism, as well as honors from the Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association.

    In February 2016 Ward traveled undercover to rebel-held areas in Syria —where almost no Western journalists have visited in over a year— to report on what life is like there under the bombs. On an undercover assignment to Syria in 2014, she interviewed two Western fighters about why they joined the jihad there. One of the jihadists was a young Somali-American from the Midwest, making Ward the only Western journalist to have interviewed an American jihadist fighter inside Syria since the start of the civil war. Since then she has interviewed opposition activists, members of the Free Syrian Army and ordinary Syrians caught in the crossfire.

    She also reported extensively from Paris following the November 2015 terror attacks, contributing to CNN’s recent award for Best Breaking News Coverage from the Royal Television Society (RTS).

    Prior to joining CNN, Ward was an international correspondent with CBS news, where she contributed regularly to “60 Minutes.”
