Leigh Phillips

Leigh Phillips is a science writer and European Union affairs journalist. Writing for Nature, the New Scientist, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, the New Statesman, Jacobin, and Scientific American, amongst other outlets, he has visited appallingly ill-equipped Siberian tuberculosis hospices, interviewed Mexican nanotechnology researchers bombed by eco-terrorists, tricked into eating whale meat by Norwegian diplomats in the high Arctic, followed Hungarian fascists on a torch-lit march threatening a gypsy village, and been tear-gassed and punched in the face by Italian Carabinieri. A long-time Brussels-based reporter, he also spent a decade exposing corporate capture of EU law-making and its accompanying hollowing out of democracy. His second book, 'The People's Republic of Walmart', co-authored with Polish-Canadian economist Michal Rozworski, will be published in 2016 by Verso.
