I’ve not been posting on this website, as from September I have been working in a politically sensitive role as an election observer in Georgia. I am currently a Long Term Observer for the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) election observation mission to the Parliamentary elections on 8 October 2016. This mission has now been extended to early November to cover 2nd round (run-off) elections on 30 October. I am deployed by the British East West Centre (BEWC) on behalf of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Read more here:
