Humphrey Hawksley is an author, commentator and broadcaster, who has reported on key trends, events and conflicts from all over the world.
His work as a BBC foreign correspondent has taken him to crises on every continent. He was expelled from Sri Lanka, opened the BBC’s television bureau in China, was arrested in Serbia and initiated a global campaign against enslaved children in the chocolate industry. A campaign which continues today.
Humphrey is the author of the acclaimed ‘Future History’ series that explores world conflict.
