Biography

Julie Flint speaks with David Brancaccio about the humanitarian crisis in the Darfur region of western Sudan. Recently returned from Darfur and Chad on a fact-finding mission for Human Rights Watch (HRW), Flint produced a video detailing the conflict in Darfur and the HRW report DARFUR DESTROYED.

In addition, Flint testified on June 15, 2004 at a U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Hearing. Her testimony "Sudan: Peace, but at What Price?" is reprinted on the Human Rights Watch site.

Julie Flint has worked on four continents in 35 years as a journalist, covering conflicts from Colombia to China, via Turkey and Somalia, but specializing in Sudan and the Middle East. A former Middle East correspondent for Britain’s GUARDIAN newspaper, and subsequently reporter for CORRESPONDENT, BBC 2’s flagship foreign affairs strand, she researched and wrote "The Scorched Earth," Christian Aid’s report on the oil war in southern Sudan, and "Darfur Destroyed," Human Rights Watch’s most recent report on Darfur. She is currently freelance, writing, broadcasting and filming on foreign affairs.
