About the Benjamin Franklin Award Winner:
Robert Gersony, this year’s recipient of the Benjamin Franklin Award, exemplifies a good American doing good abroad. Over the span of four decades, Gersony conducted on-the-ground research for the U.S. government in virtually every war and natural-disaster zone in the world.
He has and continues to have a profound effect on U.S. international policy, traversing the globe for over 30 years, traveling to remote war and disaster zones, and bringing back critical information and insights to senior policymakers to enable a smarter and more humane American foreign policy.
