A multilingual Iranian-born journalist, Jasmin Ramsey is the editor and manager of the popular US Mideast policy site, LobeLog, and the Washington correspondent for the international news wire service, IPS News.

Under her leadership LobeLog was recognized by the Economist as an essential stop for Iran coverage. Ramsey was also named one of the Guardian’s top ten Twitter accounts to follow on Iran in 2014.

Ramsey has conducted journalistic research in Iran and reported from Turkey. A foreign affairs nerd at heart, Ramsey has been covering US mideast policy, especially US-Iran relations, since 2011. Her work has taken her to diplomatic hotspots including Geneva where she obtained exclusive interviews with top Iranian officials amidst fierce competition during the intensive negotiations that led to last year’s historic nuclear accord.

Ramsey writes for print and online publications including the Inter Press Service, Al Jazeera, Guernica Magazine and Le Monde Diplomatique. Her commentary has been featured online at CNN, TIME, and the New York Times, and she has been interviewed by international news outlets including BBC World, France24, and the CBC for her Iran reportage. She can be contacted by email.
