Punditry

I’ve appeared as a political commentator on BBC local and national radio (including Radio 5, World Service, BBC Scotland, and BBC Northern Ireland), RTE, and some international radio stations. I’m also a regular guest on Tv, usually Sky News and BBC News 24/World Service. I’m a regular guest on Monocle’s popular current affairs podcasts.

Most of my TV and radio appearances aren’t online, but here’s a (somewhat outdated) clip of me debating with Harry Cole.

I was Monocle 24‘s Pakistan contributor, and still appear frequently on the station. Links to these podcasts can be found on the blog section of this website.

Public speaking

Sometimes I give talks. Recent speaking engagements include a talk on Pakistan and art at the Barbican centre; the Royal Court’s “Big Idea” series on Islam and feminism; fringe events at the party conferences (mainly focusing on international development issues); and a discussion at Goldsmith’s University about the war on terror.

Here I am sitting on a panel with Kevin Maguire and Johann Hari at the inaugural Netroots UK conference, back in 2011.
