Jina Moore, part of the reproductive-health reporting team, has just won the 2011 Elizabeth Neuffer Memorial Prize gold medal, for best reporting on the United Nations. The award honors her project on UN peacebuilding activities, a Pulitzer Center-sponsored initiative that took her to four countries across Africa. The work was made possible by a grant to the Pulitzer Center from the Stanley Foundation and it was featured in the Christian Science Monitor; the Center helped organize nearly a dozen events at which Jina has spoken about her project. The collaborative approach to covering underreported issues is at the heart of our model. The Neuffer prize is a tribute to Jina's great work.
Elizabeth Neuffer was an award-winning journalist for The Boston Globe who died in a car accident while reporting in Iraq in 2003.
Burundi, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau and the Central Africa Republic were the targets of a UN initiative aimed at stabilizing post-conflict countries through comprehensive engagement. This project assesses the results, five years out.
