He occasionally comments on global politics, finance & diplomacy-related matters at this site, and has been published in various publications like The Atlantic, Financial Times and the New York Times.

However, Djerejian ultimately counts himself a New Yorker, if an itinerant, sometimes lapsed one, having lived in over 10 countries.

He welcomes reader comments at belgraviadispatch@hotmail.com.
