Anita McNaught


Anita McNaught has been a journalist for more than 20 years, living and working all over the Pacific, Europe, South East Asia and now the Middle East. She was educated in the UK and trained in television in New Zealand.

In 2007 and 2008 she was mainly based in Iraq, and is now working out of Istanbul, Turkey. Anita says her base is proving the most extraordinary vantage point to cover the new power dynamics of this century.
