Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Center (APARC) website. The article was published on April 18, 2017.
The Shorenstein Journalism Award is an annual prize given by APARC to distinguished journalists who have had the most significant impact on the United States’ relationship with Asia-Pacific nations for their innovative and responsible journalism amid social and technological change.
