He spent a year working in post-apartheid South Africa in 1999 and has since managed humanitarian projects in refugee camps for Sudanese and Congolese in northern Uganda. Simon has an MA in Anthropology from the University of Edinburgh and after studying journalism as a postgraduate at City University, London, he worked as a junior editor at the China Daily newspaper in Beijing. He began at IWPR in November 2007 as a reporter on the ICTY/western Balkans project, based in The Hague. In 2009 Simon became the producer of IWPR’s ‘Facing Justice’ radio programme in northern Uganda.
