The Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) recently held the 2016 Awards for Editorial Excellence in Hong Kong, honouring Bloomberg News with its highest award for Excellence in Opinion Writing. The piece, titled, ‘The Roots of Rage’, by columnist Pankaj Mishra, was recognized for its deep, insightful analysis on the global rise of the Islamic State.

The judges praised Mishra’s ability to ‘shed light on a complicated topic which is all too often written from a Western Point of View’ and they added that his columns were ‘superbly crafted and challenge the reader’.

David Merritt, Executive Editor for Asia Pacific, added, ‘We’re thrilled to be recognized in this category for the first time at SOPA and it demonstrates our commitment to produce hard-hitting, informative commentary on some of the most important stories in our lifetime’.
