Growing up in Wales but half-Scottish, I’m naturally interested in how communities are impacted by policy that doesn’t necessarily consider their intricacies. While studying International Relations at postgraduate level, I became interested in how nations use policy to create ‘brands’ for themselves, but I don’t think we should need degrees in order to understand the motives behind policy formation.
Having worked as a researcher post-university, I’m currently a freelance journalist based in Cardiff. My writing tends to focus on the intersection of sport and foreign policy, especially how the former is used as a soft power tool. I’ve always viewed Europe as a uniquely intriguing melting pot of cultures, communities, and histories, and I’d like to help Accidental European encourage accessible conversations around policy that reflect that.
