Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative

The Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative is pleased to welcome Yochi Dreazen (C’99), Deputy Managing Editor and Foreign Editor of Vox. He began his journalism career at the Wall Street Journal, where he worked for 11 years and served as the paper’s main Iraq correspondent. In addition to his foreign reporting duties, Dreazen wrote about the US military at home, and in 2010, the Military Reporters & Editors Association recognized his work with its top award for domestic coverage. Based on his experiences observing and reporting on America’s military operations, he published a book in 2014 titled The Invisible Front: Love and Loss in an Era of Endless War, which looks at what Dreazen calls “’the Army’s third war’ – its fight against the plague of military suicides in the wake of our prolonged conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.” Invisible Front was named one of the “100 Notable Books of 2014” by The New York Times Book Review and one of the “Best Books of 2014” by Amazon. After leaving WSJ but prior to joining Vox, Dreazen also worked for Foreign Policy magazine, The Atlantic, and the National Journal.
