Janine di Giovanni appeared Sunday on CNN’s GPS, sharing details of The Reckoning Project‘s ongoing efforts to document war crimes against Vladimir Putin for his ongoing aggression in Ukraine. You can view Janine’s conversation with host Fareed Zakaria right here.
Janine has nearly three decades of experience reporting from many of the most dangerous and volatile regions on the planet. She has reported extensively on war crimes, global terrorism, refugee issues, and sexual violence during wartime, earning numerous awards and accolades along the way. Her interview on GPS is more confirmation of her important leadership in conflict journalism.
The conversation also offers Janine’s up-to-the-minute perspective on the conflict in Ukraine, where The Reckoning Project trains researchers to collect testimonies that can later be used in court – an effort that has the potential to make a significant impact on the way war crimes are investigated and prosecuted. Janine co-founded and currently leads The Reckoning Project as CEO. In partnership with Peter Pomerantsev, she’s created a team of legal experts and journalists that bridge the gap between journalism and justice not only in Ukraine but around the world.
