Vivienne Walt is an award-winning foreign correspondent, who has written for TIME Magazine since 2003. She is also a contributor and roving correspondent for Fortune. She has reported from more than 30 countries, though wars, terrorism, revolutions and natural disasters. She’s tracked the Arab Spring since its first stirrings, and covered the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, seeing Muammar Gaddafi close up both alive and dead within a few short months. And this past year she has tracked Europe’s most extraordinary year in memory: The mammoth migrant crisis, and the terror attacks in Paris and Brussels.

A regular guest on CNN, NPR, WGBH “The World” and France 24, her work has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Slate, The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, BusinessWeek, Fortune, and others.
