Sameer Padania · October, 2006

I'm based in London, UK, where I run a small digital media and human rights consultancy, Macroscope.

For the last three years I worked for WITNESS in New York, where I ran the Hub, a video-sharing website focused on human rights. Prior to that I worked in the field of media development for six years, on projects and strategies supporting local media in developing countries (particularly in Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean).
