I’ve been a BBC news correspondent for more than 20 years: reporting from the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia.
I’m also a news presenter for BBC World TV, though my commentaries and any mistakes here are entirely my own.
I range across politics, diplomacy, new media, social policy, religion, arts and more. I began this blog as a 2011 Nieman Journalism Fellow at Harvard. You can talk to me on Twitter at @PhilippaNews.
And – thank you for reading.
