Dispatches is a personal blog, mostly dealing with thoughts on developments in international affairs with regular dips into British Politics and the occasional tangential musing. Blog posts (which are all in a personal capacity) may vary vastly in forethought and subject.

Anyone stumbling across this blog who doesn’t know about the author, I can tell you that I am English, generally Liberal in ideology, have degrees in Politics and IR and a special interest in Russia, the Caspian Region and the Balkans, though don’t be surprised to see regular postings about the Middle East as well.
