Issa Sikiti da Silva, an award-winning freelance journalist who lived in South Africa for 18 years, began writing for IPS in 2012 when he left South Africa to seek new work challenges in West Africa.
He eventually settled in Senegal but travelled frequently to Mali, from where he wrote some compelling stories about challenges facing women and children in this part of the continent.
Based in Cambodia, Pascal Laureyn has been working in Southeast Asia for the last two years. Dealing with issues ranging from climate change to human rights, he has written stories linked to the Rohingya crisis, Duterte’s war on drugs, the growing Chinese influence in the region, the decline of democratic freedoms in Cambodia and many more.
In a special series of reports, supported by UNESCO, IPS journalists travel to the border region between Bangladesh and Myanmar to speak with Rohingya refugees, humanitarian workers and officials about the still-unfolding human rights and health crises facing this long-marginalized and persecuted community.
Emilio Godoy has been reporting for IPS in Mexico since 2007. He’s one of the most versatile journalists in the IPS network and he never says no to a proposal. A data-obsessed, resourceful researcher, he is passionate about such diverse issues as human rights, migrants, indigenous peoples, sustainable development, the environment, energy, and cyber-vigilance. He puts a committed and personal touch on everything he does, which represents a great contribution to IPS.
