I appeared on BBC1 show ‘Heir Hunters’ in 2014, where I discussed the likely circumstances surrounding a soldier captured in Hong Kong and held in a Japanese POW camp during the Second World War.

In December 2016, I appeared on Sky News discussing the signficance of Shinzo Abe's visit to Pearl Harbor. Articles discussing the significance of Abe's visit and the links to Japanese American internment and the possible creation of a Muslim registry during Trump's presidency can be found here in The Independent, Newsweek and The Conversation. I discuss the effect of US Executive Orders on children here. I have also published in The Independent and The Conversation about child refugees in the British media.

I blog for The Huffington Post. Check for my latest posts here.
