From 2007 to 2015, Karim was appointed to serve in the Permanent Mission of Malawi to the United Nations, where her father once served as ambassador. At the U.N., she worked on social, cultural, and human rights issues, representing the country at UNICEF and other bodies.

She spoke out in favor of including women in the media, saying in 1998, "The African media cannot go into the 21st century hopping on one leg. Women must be partners in the future of Africa."

Karim and her peers had developed a complex understanding of how to navigate the country's censorship rules during the one-party era, which eased the way for her to start her own publications. Later on, the Independent often voiced opposition to the policies of the new ruling government.
