Picture of Simon Roughneen
I’ve been based in southeast Asia since 2007 and am currently Asia Regional Correspondent for Nikkei Asian Review.

I travel regularly and widely around the region, sometimes beyond, and have reported from almost 30 countries in all. Outside southeast Asia, that includes Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Sudan, Turkey, Uganda.

I write for the LA Times now and then, and sometimes do radio for RTÉ, Ireland’s public broadcaster.

Previously reported for The Christian Science Monitor, The Irrawaddy, FT, Irish Examiner, Asia Sentinel, The Edge Review, Asia Times, The Diplomat, and a few more.
