Daphne Davies

Daphne Davies has worked as a journalist and development consultant for 30 years, in the not-for profit, governmental, and think-tank fields. She started work as a printer in the UK, USA and Ecuador. When she returned to the UK, she was employed as a press officer for various organisations, including Amnesty International, and the Labour Research Department.

In the 1990s, she moved to Brussels to work for the international trade union movement, followed by work with WWF, the United Nations, the European Commission (mainly in social and economic policy) and a think tank: the European Policy Centre.

Since returning to the UK in 2010 she has worked with the Club of Rome, the European Commission, and as a freelance journalist, and set up a project to publicise the situation of civil society in Least Developed Countries.

She graduated in Philosophy and Theology (!) from Nottingham University, received an M.Litt. in Moral Philosophy from Glasgow University, and a Diploma in Social Administration from the LSE. Her current passions are climate change, sustainable development, social and economic policy and trade and development.

When not busy with these, she enjoys walking, playing music (violin and piano) and has recently started making patchworks and quilts.
