Graeme Smith

Graeme Smith has devoted more time to southern Afghanistan than any other Western journalist, since the arrival of NATO forces in that region. Hired by The Globe and Mail in 2001, the war in southern Afghanistan became his full-time project in mid-2006. His awards include the Canadian Association of Journalists’ prize for investigative reporting; the Amnesty International award for Canadian print journalism; and the 2007 Michener Award.
