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 political analyst and technical consultant: I am the lead writer for a major UNICEF study in Bangladesh which will help guide long-term UNICEF strategy and policy in the country.

I have written policy and research papers on justice in the mining sector in Southeast Asia and in Australia, worked on reports on education in Lebanon and Bangladesh, and I have and translated and edited a technical deep-dive report on child poverty in Italy published by UNICEF in 2022.

I am also a Commissioning Editor at E-International Relations, the world’s leading open-access academic international relations website.

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 a ‘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’.
