Adjunct Scholar and Journalist
Graeme Smith has devoted more time to southern Afghanistan than any other Western journalist since the arrival of NATO forces in that region. He attended Ryerson University's journalism program from 1997 to 2001 and interned for two years at the Toronto Star newspaper. In 2001, he joined The Globe and Mail, Canada's largest national newspaper, and was named Moscow Bureau Chief in 2005. 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 Edward Goff Penny Memorial Prize; the Amnesty International award for Canadian print journalism; a National Newspaper Award for international reporting; and the 2007 Michener Award.
In 2008, The Globe and Mail published Graeme Smith's insightful expose on the Taliban; it can be found here:
