Tharanga Yakupitiyage

Working out of the United Nations Headquarters in New York, she writes a range of stories on domestic and international human rights and development issues, including conflict-related migration, environmental impacts on indigenous communities, and global press freedom. Tharanga’s diverse portfolio has provided her with a nuanced understanding of human rights, and thus a fresh way to tell the very pressing stories of today’s world.
