Washington Post columnist David Ignatius has spent 35 years as an editor, reporter and columnist writing on global politics, economics and international affairs. His columns appear twice weekly in the Post, his articles have been published in numerous magazines, and he is a frequent guest on Sunday morning political talk shows.
After 10 years at The Wall Street Journal covering business and politics, Ignatius joined The Washington Post in 1986 as editor of the Sunday Outlook section. He served as the Post’s foreign editor from 1990 to 1992, supervising the paper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. He began writing his column in 1998.
Ignatius received the 2000 Gerald Loeb Award for Commentary, a 2005 Edward Weintal Special Citation and the 1984 Edward Weintal Prize for Diplomatic Reporting. He served as a Fisher Family Fellow to the Future of Diplomacy Project at Harvard Kennedy School.
Ignatius is the author of several books, including eight espionage novels inspired by his in-depth examination of political affairs. One of those, Body of Lies, was adapted as a Hollywood film.
Ignatius’s appearance was co-sponsored by the IU Center on Congress and the IU School of Journalism.
