Elizabeth Neuffer, author and journalist with The Boston Globe, will present a lecture titled “From Bosnia to Afghanistan: Justice after September 11th” on Monday, May 6, at 6:45 p.m. in Straus Library. The lecture is sponsored by Milton Academy and the United Nations Association of Greater Boston.
Elizabeth was The Boston Globe’s European Bureau Chief from 1994-1998, during which time she won the Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation. Elizabeth has reported from hot spots around the world including Pakistan and Afghanistan following the events of September 11, from Rwanda after the genocide; from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq during the Gulf War; and from the Soviet Union during Gorbachev’s resignation.
Elizabeth’s book, The Key to My Neighbor’s House: Seeking Justice in Bosnia and Rwanda, which was published in November by Picador/St. Martin’s Press, provides an inside look at the workings and significance of the two war crimes tribunals through the experiences of the people directly involved.
Neuffer was awarded the SAIS-Novartis Prize for Excellence in International Journalism in 1997 and was named the Edward R. Murrow Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in 1998-1999. She is a graduate of Cornell University and holds a master’s degree from the London School of Economics.
