“Ms. Gongadze is a journalist of tremendous integrity,” said Case Western Reserve President Eric W. Kaler. “Her commitment to upholding justice and ensuring civil liberties—for people in Ukraine and around the world—and her persistent efforts to seek and speak the truth are an inspiration.”
The Inamori Ethics Prize has been awarded since 2008 to honor outstanding international ethical leaders whose actions and influence have greatly improved the condition of humankind. Gongadze will receive the prize, deliver a free public lecture about her work, and participate in an academic symposium and panel discussion during Inamori Center events Sept. 21–22 on the Case Western Reserve campus.
