Adam Ramsey is a half Malaysian, half Northern Irishman who was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He is a freelance journalist. After an internship with the BBC late 2011, he saved up some money and came to Cairo in May 2012.
Today, Adam is based between Bangkok and Cairo covering stories in South East Asia and the Middle East.
This blog is a repository for some of his work. While he has covered a wide range of topics, his major focus is on power dynamics, specifically regarding issues of conflict, rights, and justice. He is a writer first and foremost, but occasionally he finds himself shooting photos and even video.
In 2014, he was accepted to RISC Class VI, but thankfully he hasn’t had to employ any of his training yet.
He has worked for the Daily News Egypt newspaper and acted as Radio Television Hong Kong’s (RTHK) Middle East correspondent. He has contributed to New Statesman, Atlantic Media, the Guardian, Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, Irish Times, New Internationalist and VICE News among others.
