The Frontlines, with Clarissa Ward

Programme Editor
She’s been at the front line of every war in the last two decades. As Chief International Correspondent at CNN, Clarissa Ward has been the face of CNN with every big, new conflict. Ward is known for her fearless interviews with Taliban generals after overthrowing Kabul, and her reports on Ukrainians fleeing Kyiv after the bombs just hit.

Eelco Bosch van Rosenthal will speak with Ward about her work. What is it like when your work is always located at a front line? Why does she always seek out the frontline? How does she hold her own as a woman in a male-dominated world of war, terrorism and extremism? How has her presence in countries that view the West as enemies influenced her view of the West’s actions in these regions?

Ward’s new book: ‘On All Fronts‘ Ward, is being translated to the Dutch: ‘Op alle fronten’ by Uitgeverij Pluim. It describes her singular career of journalism in this age of extremism. Following a privileged but lonely childhood, she found her calling in the aftermath of 9/11.

In October, Ward’s book will be published in Dutch by Uitgeverij Pluim: Op alle fronten (On all fronts). It describes her singular career and of journalism in this age of extremism. Following a privileged but lonely childhood, she found her calling in the aftermath of 9/11.
