I will write for anyone who is willing to put up with my ramblings. In the past my ramblings have been found in Left Foot Forward, New Europe, The International Business Times, Liberal Conspiracy, and Football Rascal.
I have also spoken on Russia Today (RT), the BBC (both local and the World Service) and spoken at events at at UNHCR, universities and alongside Members of Parliament.
Hynd’s Blog breaks every rule about effective communications – it has no target audience, there is no correlation between subjects covered and as a result I have about as many ‘unfollows’ as I do ‘follows’. But that’s OK, it’s my personal blog, reflecting my personal interests.
I hold a Bsc in Social Policy from the University of Bath and a MA in Human Rights from the University of Sussex where I wrote my thesis on reconciling human rights and religion. Since then I have gone onto work for a series of secular and faith based organisations in Brussels, Westminster and abroad. Although predominantly based around human rights, I work on a wide range of social justice issues.
I am actively involved with Amnesty International and a number of other NGOs. My passions spread far and wide including real ale, mountaineering and much more.
People/Organisations that have been stupid enough to employ me in the past include:
- Don Foster MP
- Amnesty International
- The Quaker Council for European Affairs
- The Salvation Army
- Stroud Brewery
- EAPPI – through the The World Council of Churches
I am currently working for the African Palliative Care Association.
Feel free to get in touch, I am always interested in what you have to say!
