jessica_bylineI’m a journalist currently based in London, writing for publications including The Guardian, The Telegraph, Bloomberg News, Germany’s taz.die tageszeitung and numerous others with a focus on global women’s rights and social affairs. I’m associate editor of Devex, working with a team of reporters around the world to cover international development and humanitarian aid; and I write regularly for Prospect, the UK’s leading current affairs monthly magazine, where I was an editor for several years. I have most recently reported from anti-Trump protests in Washington, DC; the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa in Jordan; and the European Development Days in Brussels.

I have also worked on projects for the European Commission and often speak on TV and radio, including LBC, London Live, Newstalk and BBC Newsbeat.

A former Arts & Humanities Research Council scholar, I hold graduate degrees with distinction in journalism and international relations. I was selected as a fellow of the International Journalists’ Programme in 2016 and have lived and worked in London, Edinburgh, Barcelona and Berlin.

You’ll find some examples of my work – including news, comment and features – on the portfolio page (although I don’t update this very often). Please feel free to contact me about freelance commissions, other opportunities or just for a chat; or find me on Twitter.
