Alex Perry is an author and correspondent. Born in the US and raised in the UK, where he read PPE at Oxford, he has worked in 100 countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. For 12 years, he was a bureau chief for TIME magazine and he now writes for a number of publications, including Newsweek, where he has been a contributing editor. He is the winner of numerous awards for his journalism and his investigation into Boko Haram’s use of beheadings was requested as evidence by the International Criminal Court in The Hague. At times, Perry’s work has been recognised in other ways. In 2002, the Indian government tried to deport him when he questioned the state of the Prime Minister’s health. In 2007 Perry was held in jail in Zimbabwe for five days for working without accreditation before being convicted of being a “determined and resourceful journalist.” He has written three books and a number of ebooks. Alex lives with his wife and three daughters in Hampshire, England.
