About the speaker
Sarah Chayes, a senior fellow in Carnegie’s Democracy and Rule of Law program, is internationally recognized for her innovative thinking on corruption and its implications.

Prior, she served as special assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen and as special adviser to two commanders of the international troops in Afghanistan.

After covering the fall of the Taliban with National Public Radio and over a decade as a journalist covering hot spots around the world, Chayes chose to settle in the former Taliban heartland, Kandahar. In 2005, she founded Arghand, a start-up manufacturing cooperative, where men and women are working together produce fine skin-care products.

From 1996 to 2001, Chayes was NPR’s Paris correspondent. For her work during the Kosovo crisis, she shared the 1999 Foreign Press Club and Sigma Delta Chi awards. Along with Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security, which won the 2016 Los Angeles Times Book Prize, Chayes is the author of The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan After the Taliban.

She is a frequent contributor to Foreign Policy Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic and the Washington Post, among other outlets.
