Additional Notes

Ed Vulliamy is the author of Seasons in Hell: Understanding Bosnia's War. As a reporter for The Guardian, he was among the first to make public the murderous conditions in Serb concentration camps in Bosnia. His reporting, which helped bring about the closing of camps near the Bosnian city of Prijedor, is credited with saving many lives.

Vulliamy's coverage of the war and genocide in the former Yugoslavia helped to earn him Grenada Television's Foreign Correspondent of the Year Award in 1992 and the James Cameron Award for journalism in 1994. In 1993 and again in 1997, he received the British Press Award for International Journalist of the Year. He has given key testimony in war crimes trials before the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and he remains active in efforts to memorialize genocide victims and bring the perpetrators of genocide in Bosnia to justice.

Since the 1990s, Vuilliamy has covered the September 11 terrorist attacks and the war in Iraq. His recent writing for the London Observer has addressed topics ranging from U.S. foreign and economic policy to the changing face of American culture. He is also co-author, with David Leigh, of Sleaze: The Corruption of Parliament.
