Derek Ingram (born 1925) is a British journalist and author, and is widely regarded as the best writer on issues related to the Commonwealth of Nations.1 He was the co-founder of the Commonwealth Journalists Association (CJA) in 1978, and served as President of the CJA from 1980 until 1990, when he was elected President Emeritus.1

He worked for the Daily Mail for seventeen years, including working his way up to Deputy Editor. A disagreement with the chairman, Viscount Rothermere, caused him to resign from the paper. In 1967, he founded the Gemini News Service, which he edited until 1993, and which reported stories from developing countries, particularly in the Commonwealth.

Ingram is a member of the Round Table Moot, having first attended a meeting of the Moot in 1971. Until 2007, he wrote the 'Commonwealth Update' in The Round Table Journal. He has written extensively in the journal, including its coverage of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings, having attended every one since 1971. He is a Vice-President of the Royal Commonwealth Society.
