Georgina Rannard is a journalist at BBC News in London, United Kingdom. She works in breaking news and has produced several reports about refuge and migration-related issues in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe. Before becoming a journalist, she completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh in Global History, focusing on the economic impact of British imperialism in the Americas. Georgina is interested in exploring media representations of refugees and migration issues, in particular how to engage news audiences who increasingly react to the topic with inertia. Georgina is a Humanity in Action Senior Fellow (Lantos Fellowship 2015).
