N-189, 2008-09

Mohamad Bazzi, a professor in New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, has won the American Academy for Diplomacy’s Arthur Ross Award for Distinguished Reporting and Analysis of Foreign Affairs. He shares the prize with Dexter Filkins of the New York Times. Bazzi, formerly Newsday’s Middle East bureau chief, was recognized for his articles written for the Nation magazine on Lebanon.

As head of Newsday’s Middle East bureau, Bazzi was the paper’s lead writer on the Iraq war and its aftermath. He has written extensively about Sunni-Shiite tensions and militant Islam, including profiles of extremists operating in Iraq. He also covered the wars in Afghanistan and Lebanon as well as the Palestinian uprising. For six months after the September 11th attacks, he was on special assignment reporting on the rise of militant Islam. Bazzi traveled from London to Cairo to Pakistan chronicling the emergence of the Al-Qaeda network and its ideological roots. In nearly 10 years on staff at Newsday, he served as the paper’s United Nations Bureau Chief and was a metro reporter covering New York City transportation, the City University of New York, and neighborhood issues.

The American Academy of Diplomacy is a membership organization of former career and non-career Ambassadors and senior-level diplomats dedicated to strengthening the institution of American diplomacy. It annually grants awards to recognize major contributions to the field of diplomacy and to stimulate further interest in and public understanding of the need for excellence in the practice of America’s relations with the rest of the word.
