CHRGJ Scholar in Residence Receives Inaugural Jamal Khashoggi Fellowship

Hala AldosariThe Washington Post has named CHRGJ Scholar in Residence Dr. Hala Aldosari as its inaugural Jamal Khashoggi Fellow.

In a blog post published today, the Post describes the fellowship program, which was established to honor the late Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi,  as “a new global opinions program” designed to “provide an independent platform for journalists and writers to offer their perspectives from parts of the world where freedom of expression is threatened or suppressed.”

Dr. Aldosari is a highly-lauded scholar, activist, and writer from Saudia Arabia. Her research at the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice examines the social determinants of women’s health in the Arab Gulf states. A committed scholar-activist, Dr. Aldosari serves on the advisory board for Human Rights Watch, the Gulf Center for Human Rights, and a global initiative to combat violence against women.

The Post’s Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt said:

“We are honored to pay tribute to Jamal’s life and work and to the values he cared most about, including human rights and freedom of expression. … And we are honored that Hala has agreed to be the first fellow. Hala is a respected and leading voice on women’s issues, health policy and political reform across Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf states. We look forward to having her join our roster of contributors offering informed and different perspectives that they may not be able to express in their own countries or region.”

The Post will publish Dr. Aldosari’s columns in both English and Arabic.
