I work in the Media Programme at the Open Society Foundations in London. I oversee mediapolicy.org, and collaborate closely with the Mapping Digital Media project.

Till I joined OSF, I was consulting on how the internet impacts on human rights, activism, media, journalism and philanthropy. I worked with a range of clients in the UK, Europe, and the USA, from human rights organisations and NGOs, to donors and media companies, including WITNESSTactical Technology Collective, the Knight Foundation, and Docfactory/Bertha Foundation (there’s more about my work with these clients here).

Elsewhere on this site you can find more detail on my articles, policy reports and chapters, and talks and presentations. I am a board member of Archaeos, a NYC-based non-profit dedicated to the preservation of world cultural heritage, and to the advancement of archaeology, anthropology, and education, and I am also a Fellow of the RSA.

  1. Dear Sameer,

    I read your piece in BOMB today. You may recall you asked about my own interview with Adam Phillips some time ago. I really liked your questions; you got a lot out of him.

    I met Sabine, the managing editor, today. How did you go about getting a piece in BOMB?

    I have a few ideas. Sabine gave me a free copy!

    Let me know,
