meet the TEAM

Southeast Asia Globe - - Editorial - Euan Black On­line re­porter

Euan joined the Globe Me­dia Asia team in 2016 af­ter a brief stint work­ing at a hu­man rights or­gan­i­sa­tion in Phnom Penh. Prior to ar­riv­ing in the coun­try, he spent six years man­ag­ing cock­tail bars across the world, which helped fund his stud­ies and fu­ture trav­els. Study­ing In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions

taught Euan about the var­i­ous ac­tors, prin­ci­ples and norms that de­fine the in­ter­na­tional sys­tem. More im­por­tantly, how­ever, it taught him about the power of dis­course, and how con­ven­tional wis­dom of­ten flies in the face of facts. From the chang­ing world of Cam­bo­dian Bud­dhism to the rise of novel fi­nan­cial tech­nolo­gies, Euan is drawn to sto­ries of change – and sees Cam­bo­dia as the per­fect place to hone his craft. “The re­gion is de­vel­op­ing at break­neck speed, mean­ing there is no short­age of busi­ness sto­ries,” he said. “Such sto­ries are less about dol­lars and cents than the val­ues of these so­ci­eties.”
