George Chaplin Fellow in Distinguished Journalism
"Assessing Obama's Foreign Policy:
Has America Changed Direction?"
During the first year of the Obama presidency, the world observed one of the most fascinating presidential transitions in modern times. Drawing on his years of experience Sanger explored the debate over sending thousands of troops to Afghanistan and navigated the rising confrontation with Iran. He also assessed the long-term goals of energy independence and Obama's effort to project a new image to the world.
The George Chaplin Fellowship in Distinguished Journalism was established in 1986 by DFS-Hawai'i with a grant to the East-West Center to honor the leadership and ideals of George Chaplin. Chaplin Fellows are chosen because of their significant contributions to journalism and to the principles exemplified by Mr. Chaplin.
