Jenny Nordberg, Sweden, is the New York-based foreign affairs columnist for Swedish national newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.
Her latest work, an investigative project published in The New York Times and The International Herald Tribune, broke the story of "bacha posh" -- how girls grow up disguised as boys in gender-segregated Afghanistan. She is now working on a nonfiction book, to be published in six countries, exploring the topic further in-depth. For several years, Nordberg was part of The New York Times' investigative unit, where she worked on projects such as an examination of the American freight railroad system; a series that won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, and U.S. efforts at exporting democracy to Haiti.
She has also produced and written several documentaries for American television, about Iraqi refugees, Pakistan's nuclear proliferation and the impact of the global financial crisis in Europe.
In Sweden, Nordberg was a member of the first investigative team at Swedish Broadcasting's national radio division, where she supervised projects on terrorism and politics. Nordberg has won top prizes from Investigative Reporters and Editors, The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and Guldspaden, Sweden's premier investigative journalism award.
Jenny Nordberg holds a B.A. in Law and Journalism from Stockholm University, and an M.A. from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
