The Washington Post launches the Jamal Khashoggi Fellowship
The Washington Post has announced the launch of the Jamal Khashoggi Fellowship, a new global opinions program established to honor the late Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi. The fellowship will provide an independent platform for journalists and writers to cover and offer their perspectives from parts of the world where freedom of expression is threatened or suppressed. The Post has named Hala Al-Dosari, an award-winning activist, scholar and writer from Saudi Arabia, the first Jamal Khashoggi fellow.
"We are honored to pay tribute to Jamal's life and work by advancing the values he cared most about including human rights, democracy, accountability and freedom of expression," said Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor at The Post. "Hala is a respected and leading voice on women's issues across Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf states. We look forward to having her join our stable of writers offering informed and different perspectives that they may not be able to express in their own countries or region."
Al-Dosari's columns will also be translated in Arabic and available on Post Opinion's Arabic language page.
