Jasmin Ramsey is a D.C.-based editor and journalist. In 2012 she became the Washington correspondent for Inter Press Service, an international news wire service, and shortly thereafter took over its U.S. foreign policy-focused blog, Lobe Log, as chief editor.

During her leadership Lobe Log was listed as a must-read site on Iran by prominent news sites including the Washington Post and the Economist and received regular mentions in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Featuring a unique blend of investigative journalism and expert commentary, Lobe Log serves as a go-to source for Middle East-policy watchers and became the first web blog to receive the Arthur Ross Award for Distinguished Reporting and Analysis of Foreign Affairs from the American Academy of Diplomacy in 2015.

As a freelance editor and journalist, Ramsey continues her focus on U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, and writes for print and online publications. She has been interviewed by numerous international news outlets including BBC World, France24, Al Jazeera English and the CBC for her coverage of US-Iranian relations. Her commentary has also been featured by various news outlets including CNN, TIME, and Le Monde Diplomatique. The Guardian has named Ramsey among the top 10 twitter accounts to follow on Iran.
