About Nabeelah Shabbir
Nabeelah Shabbir joined openDemocracy in March 2005 and is currently battling an intense cafe and croissant lifestyle as English editor-in-chief of cafebabel.com, based in Paris. Her interests lie in languages and international participation, live conversations, networking and analysing the latest headlines. Were it up to her, we would all be conversing in her own global language comprised of everything she currently (likes to think she) speaks. Nabeelah holds an Honours degree in English and German Literature from the University of Warwick. She has worked in the UK policy/think tank sector at Demos as a media, communications and research assistant, and for the England/Ireland desk at UNRIC in Brussels.
