Najam Interviewed on Nobel Peace Prize Winners
Adil Najam, Dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed by TRT World on journalists Maria Ressa from the Philippines and Dmitry Muratov from Russia, the winners of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
In his remarks, Najam commented on the winners and how this prize in particular is a message for freedom of the press and expression. He went on to comment on the symbolic importance of the Peace Prize more than any other Nobel Prize as a spotlight for specific issues rather than a specific individual and the importance of highlighting freedom of the press and truth in an era with just as many mechanisms of suppression and misinformation.
