Ari Rath Prize for Critical Journalism

The “Ari Rath Prize for Critical Journalism” was established based on a private initiative to honour journalists who, in the spirit of the renowned former editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post who died in January 2017, have rendered outstanding services in their work to reporting on flight, expulsion and asylum that is both critical and committed to respecting and protecting human rights.
