Contributing Writer, newyorker.com

Ben Taub writes for The New Yorker about jihadism in Europe and the war in Syria. He wrote two magazine features about war crimes: “The Assad Files” details a criminal investigation that links the systematic torture and murder of tens of thousands of people to orders drafted by President Bashar al-Assad’s highest-level security committee, and approved by the president himself; “The Shadow Doctors” focuses on the underground race to spread medical knowledge in opposition areas, as the regime strives to eradicate it.
