Emma Daly

Emma Daly is a recovering journalist who helps colleagues at Human Rights Watch to tell stories that will attract media attention and raise the pressure on governments to end abusive policies and improve people’s lives. Before becoming an activist, she spent almost 20 years covering stories of people living through war, abuse or discrimination, mostly in Central America, the former Yugoslavia and Spain. She moved from Reuters to The Independent and ended up with the New York Times, and has contributed to several books, including the Penguin Book of Journalism and Crimes of War: What the Public Should Know.
