Esther Judah

Esther Judah is a journalist based in between London, Istanbul and Jerusalem covering the Middle East and North Africa as well as more broadly refugee and migration issues. 

I speak English and French fluently. Moreover, I have lived in Paris, London and Turkey and have reported on EU affairs and radicalisation in Brussels, Israel/Palestine, Turkey and the Syrian refugee crisis. I have also spent considerable time in Bangladesh covering the Rohingya crisis with the UN.  

I have previous experience as a print journalist as well as radio and TV live for people such as FRANCE24, FOX news, CBC Radio and Voice of America.
