Jasmin Ramsey is an Iranian-born editor and journalist based in Washington, DC. In 2012 she became the Washington corespondent for Inter Press Service, an international news wire service, and shortly thereafter took over its US foreign policy focused blog, Lobelog, as its chief editor.
During her leadership LobeLog was listed as a must-read site on Iran by several prominent news sites including The Economist and received regular mentions in well-known publications including The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Featuring a unique blend of investigative journalism and expert commentary, LobeLog remains a go-to source for Middle East-focused policy watchers, analysts and journalists.
As a freelance editor and journalist Ramsey continues her focus on US foreign policy in the Middle East, especially US-Iran relations, and writes for print and online publications. She has been interviewed by numerous international news broadcasters 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.
