Prior to joining the PRI James worked with regional body ASrIA, an organisation dedicated to promoting SRI across the region, with responsibilities across operations, projects, communications and membership.
James has previously worked and volunteered with a range of organisations in the non-profit sector across education, poverty, human rights and international development. James holds a BA in Law and a Masters in International Politics - International Relations from the University of Manchester.
