James Barbour

Spokesperson, Head of Comms
European Union Delegation

Foreign policy and communications professional. Mostly career diplomat but with a few other strings to my bow - and always looking for new ones.

Currently comms, public diplomacy, culture and education for @EUintheUS; previously @UKinUSA, @UKinRussia, @UKinSouthAfrica, @ForeignOffice and a stint at H+K.

I like foreign policy, news, innovation, technology and culture. Fascinated by how governments, organisations and individuals relate to each other, and how we can use new technologies in solving tomorrow's policy challenges both foreign and domestic.

Not James Barbour the actor. Don't ask me about Brexit.
