2020 Andrew Carnegie Fellows Recipient

Azmat Khan
Investigative Reporter and Professor of Journalism; Future of War Fellow, New America

Azmat Khan is the Future of War Fellow at New America and an investigative journalist who has written extensively about the human costs of war. She is coauthor of a prize-winning New York Times magazine cover story on Iraqi civilian casualties during the U.S.-led war against the Islamic State. Her Carnegie project will expand upon this theme, using reporting from Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Yemen, along with academic research, to explore the extent of the civilian death toll in America's precision air wars, why the deaths occurred, and how a failure to address them could haunt American policy for decades to come. Ms. Khan’s investigative journalism has been featured on the PBS series Frontline and in BuzzFeed, and she has taught journalism at Columbia University, City University of New York, and Arizona State University.
