Most recently his work has focussed on the migration crisis in Europe – he’s reported across the continent on this ongoing story, from Lampedusa, the Greek islands, eastern Europe and elsewhere. As Europe correspondent he reported from Brussels and beyond as the Eurozone crisis ripped through country after country.

Matthew is an experienced moderator, and has chaired a variety of debates and conferences in London, New York and Geneva for international institutions and organisations.
