International Views is a new project aimed at providing longform analysis and research about international politics. To set ourselves apart from other news sources, we focus on rigorous research outside of the strictures of the 24-hour news cycle. All articles are meticulously referenced so that you can read more and fact-check claims.

Julian Izzo

I was born in Brazil and raised between Europe and West Africa. Aside from running and writing for International Views, I am a Commissioning Editor at E-International Relations, “the world’s leading international relations website,” and I provide policy writing and research services to non-profits. Recently, I have written policy and research papers on justice in the mining sector in Southeast Asia and in Australia, as well as translating and editing a deep-dive report on child poverty in Italy published by UNICEF.

I hold a B.A. (Hons.) in English Literature from Trinity College, Dublin, and an M.A. in International Relations from the University of Melbourne.

My work has been cited by academics: see Usang & Enemuoh, ‘An Appraisal of the Legal Nexus Between National Security and the Protection of Human Rights Standards in Nigeria’, Law and Social Justice Review, Vol. 3 (1), January 2022; as well as in news outlets and by think tanks: ‘Russia’s Special Military Operation in Ukraine’, The Times of Israel, April 10, 2022; ‘The Tale of Two Rivals: NATO expansion and Russia’, Centre for Security and Strategy Studies (CeSCube).

I am also a literary translator. I received the High Commendation award at the Italian Cultural Institute’s 2018 Prize for Italian Literary Translation in Melbourne. At the moment, I am working on a first translation of Giorgio Manganelli’s ‘La Palude Definitiva’.
