My name is Ershad Alijani. I was born in 1985 in Iran and I have been working as a journalist since 2004. My first job was in ISKA news agency as a young journalist. Later, I worked in many media in Iran as a journalist specialized in foreign policy and politics. I collaborated with several newspapers like Sarmayeh, Etemad, Kargozaran, Bahar and Shargh.
I moved to Paris in 2011 and began to work at “Radio France International” and “The Observers” desk in France24 TV channel based in Paris.
I write mostly about the Middle East, especially about Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq. I do fact-checking for France24 and RFI.
I follow political and military events in the Middle East closely and yes, I am a feminist so I write a lot about the women of this region as well. you can contact me by “Contact” or ealijani@france24.com
