About Paul Abernethy

Paul is the Advocacy and Campaigns Officer for Europe, and is the main point of contact for the UK Government/Parliament. Paul has worked in campaigns for 7 years, spanning both the international development and higher education sectors. Originally hailing from Liverpool (no, he doesn't know The Beatles), he can now be found wandering the streets of London, boring strangers with talk of politics. In his spare time he leads life that includes an unhealthy obsession with Marvel superhero films.
