Hi, I'm Tim Liptrot


My background is in humanitarian and political research in Jordan and Lebanon. Currently, I'm a comparative politics PhD student at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.


This blog serves:

  • To teach myself to write compellingly. The best way to learn to write compellingly is to find out you are wrong time and time again until you are right a little more often. (Or, perhaps, until you are wrong in less obvious ways *wink*)

  • To spare my friends listening to me ramble about what Mohammed Bin Salman did this week.


Some of my previous projects are available here, if you'd like to take a look.



I'm always looking for new insight & interesting conversation.
