Maher Sattar

Maher Sattar is an award-winning journalist and editor at The Fuller Project. Maher's career has spanned broadcast, print, and digital reporting, with a decade covering South and Southeast Asia for outlets such as The New York Times, Al Jazeera, and The Washington Post. He has reported extensively on the climate crisis, migration and refugees, politics, and the international labor movement, with a particular focus on how women - such as Bangladeshi garment workers - organize for their rights in these arenas.

Before moving to New York, Maher was a lead reporter on the Washington Post's Ivanka Inc project, taking a sweeping look at the women being exploited throughout the Ivanka Trump brand's global supply chain. Since then he has covered the 2020 US primaries and general election for CBS News, and won a Webby for a documentary investigating organ traffickers targeting refugees in the Middle East. He began his journalism career as a local fixer on Water World, PBS NOW's Headliner award-winning documentary on the impact of climate change in Bangladesh.
