Julian Izzo

I was born in Brazil and raised between Europe and West Africa. Aside from running and writing for this site, I am a research consultant for non-profits. I have been the lead author of a benchmark UNICEF report in Bangladesh which will help guide long-term strategy and policy in the country, an editor/translator of a deep-dive on child poverty in Italy which helped drive post-COVID investment in social protection, and I have written policy and research papers on justice in the mining sector in Southeast Asia and in Australia. I have also worked on reports on education in Lebanon and Bangladesh, and interned with UNIDO, Cote d’Ivoire.

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 received the ‘High Commendation’ award from the Italian Cultural Institute of Melbourne for their prize in literary translation. I am now working on a first translation of Giorgio Manganelli’s ‘La Palude Definitiva’.
