Roger Cohen, ‘Globalist’ columnist for the International Herald Tribune (IHT) and NYTimes.com, will move his reporting base from New York to London this fall to be closer to the main themes of his columns on world affairs. Mr. Cohen’s move comes at a critical time in European and in global affairs. He will continue to travel and report from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
A veteran foreign correspondent and commentator on international affairs, Mr. Cohen has garnered many accolades for his column in the IHT and for his books and magazine articles. He is very popular with IHT readers for his courageous reporting from places such as Iran, his independent analysis and his elegant writing. Prior to becoming a regular columnist on the IHT’s Views pages, Mr. Cohen was the paper’s editor-at-large. Before that, he held a number of positions at The New York Times, including foreign editor and international writer-at-large. Mr. Cohen was born and educated in the U.K. and is a published author on international affairs.
Serge Schmemann, editor of the IHT editorial page, said: “I am delighted Roger is moving to Europe. Being on the continent will further shape his unique point of view and enrich our Views pages. During his career, he has developed a distinct and respected voice on global affairs, and his ability to cover a diverse range of subjects, from politics to culture to football, makes him a hugely exciting writer.”
