Announcing BPI’s 2024 Global Research Fellow: Josefina Salomon

We are proud to announce Josefina Salomón as the next BPI Global Research Fellow for 2024.

Josefina is an Argentine-British journalist, editor and researcher. Over the last two decades, she has lived and traveled extensively across Latin America documenting human rights, organized crime, and security issues for organizations including Amnesty International, InSight Crime, the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and the Washington Office on Latin America, among others. She has also reported from the region for media outlets including The Guardian, Al-Jazeera, BBC, Vice, Newsweek en Español and La Nación.

More recently, she co-founded In.Visibles, a digital platform amplifying the stories of people caught up between violence at the hands of criminal organizations and government policies that criminalize them. She lives between her native Buenos Aires, Melbourne, and London.

In her role as the 2024 BPI Global Research Fellow, Josefina will spend her fellowship writing and publishing about budding and existing higher education initiatives in prisons across Latin America and elsewhere around the world.
