Bret Stephens became an op-ed columnist and associate editor for the New York Times in April, 2017. Before that, he spent 11 years as the author of “Global View,” the foreign-affairs column of the Wall Street Journal, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary in 2013. He also served eight years as the Journal’s deputy editorial-page editor, responsible for the newspaper’s global opinion section, as well as a member of the editorial board.
Mr. Stephens began his career at the Wall Street Journal in 1998 as an editor in New York, and later wrote editorials and articles for the newspaper from Brussels. In January 2002 he was named editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post, a position he assumed at age 28. At the Post, he was responsible for the newspaper’s news, editorial, digital and international editions, and also wrote a weekly column.
Mr. Stephens returned to the Journal in late 2004. He has reported stories from around the world, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza, and interviewed dozens of world leaders. In June 2017 he became a regular political analyst for MSNBC.
Mr. Stephens has twice been chairman of Pulitzer Prize juries and is a national judge of the prestigious Livingston Awards. He holds two honorary doctorates. In 2014 he was awarded the Professional Achievement Prize by the University of Chicago, a distinction he shares with composer Philip Glass, astronomer Carl Sagan, and Nobel laureate Gary Becker.
In 2014 Penguin published his book America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder. Former Secretary of State George Shultz hailed the book as “wise counsel for a constructive, tough-minded, and sensible foreign policy.”
Mr. Stephens was born in New York and raised in Mexico City. He holds a BA with honors from the University of Chicago an MSc from the London School of Economics.
