Award-winning author and journalist Janine di Giovanni has been covering global conflict since the 1980s, and is considered one of Europe's most respected journalists.

Her new book, Ghosts by Daylight, has been called by Sebastian Junger "a profound and beautiful book about the two great human struggles: Love and War", and by Elizabeth Gilbert "a great and important achievement".
In her book, The Place at the End of the World: Essays from the Edge, as with all her writing, she covers the human cost of war - working often in conflict zones that the world's press has forgotten.

She is the Middle East Editor of Newsweek, and a contributing editor of Vanity Fair.
She is also a consultant on Syria for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).  She has won many awards for her reportage, war reporting and journalism.
