Peter Apps (he/him)
Global affairs commentator and writer
While reporting on the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2006, journalist Peter Apps was paralysed from the shoulders down in a car accident, aged just 25. Since then, he has continued to travel and write as a global affairs commentator for Reuters, with postings overseas in southern Africa and South Asia. He has covered conflicts and crises, reporting on everything from emerging markets to defense. Of the more than 20 countries he has reported from, over half have been since the injury. Peter is also the founder and executive director of a pop-up think tank, the Project for Study of the 21st Century, a member of the British Army Reserve and an active member of the UK Labour Party.
