Catherine Fieschi is the director of Counterpoint. After ten years as an academic she moved in to the policy world: first as director of the London-based think tank Demos and then at the helm of the think tank of the British Council.

In 2011, the combination of a life spent traveling and living abroad, a doctorate in comparative politics and limitless confidence in the possibility of cross-cultural understanding finally led her to found Counterpoint: a research and advisory group that understands the impact of culture on politics and markets.

As a result, Counterpoint's approach is intrinsically comparative and draws on a variety of social science disciplines as well interpretive approaches in order to reveal the social and cultural dynamics that are too often left out of mainstream risk and political analyses.
