Bashdar Pusho Ismaeel is a London-based freelance writer and analyst, whose primary focus and expertise is on the Kurds, Iraq and Middle Eastern current affairs. The main focus of his writing is to promote peace, justice and increase awareness of the diversity, suffering and at times explosive mix in Iraq and the Middle East.
Bashdar has excellent historical, socio-political and economical knowledge, is a wide traveller and has experience of a wide range of countries and cultures. Academically, he obtained First class Bachelor of Science degree honours from a top university in London and is currently working in the computing industry for a blue-chip company.
He has lived in London for 16 years as tragic family circumstances bound them to the relative tranquillity of the UK, having suffered many hardships under the Saddam dictatorship. Despite the hardships, his family have worked hard and have now settled in the UK.
Education has been his main focus since arriving in the UK but the brutality and repression experienced has served as a positive perceptive that has only increased his focus, determination and will to promote harmony and unity in a seemingly disparate age.
Most recently he has produced work for the Asian Times, The Daily Star (Lebanon), Hewler Globe, The Washington Examiner, Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), KurdishMedia, On Line Opinion, Peyamner and a number of other sources including a seminar recommended reading for Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict at Le High University (Pennsylvania). His work has been republished extensively elsewhere on the Internet.
