Luke Hunt is a regular contributor to World Politics Review. He began his career in journalism in the early 1980s after traveling through what was then some of the world's trouble-spots, including Northern Ireland and the south of Morocco. Hunt initially worked for Australian Associated Press and then Agence France-Presse where he served as bureau chief in Afghanistan and Cambodia while covering conflicts in Iraq, Sri Lanka and Kashmir. His work has appeared under many of the world's major mastheads and on international networks including CNN, the BBC, Voice of America and ABC in his native Australia. Hunt co-authored the book "Barings Lost," has an academic background in military studies, journalism and economics and has lectured at universities in Melbourne, Phnom Penh and Shanghai. In mid-2008 he established Bomborra Productions which focuses on South East Asia, in particular conflicts in Thailand and the Philippines.
