Cátia Bruno

My name is Cátia Bruno and I am a journalist based in Lisbon, Portugal, the city where I was born.

I graduated in 2011 with a BA in Journalism. Since then, I already worked for two national newspapers in the country - the prestigious Expresso and the innovative i. I also freelanced for some international publications like GlobalPost, New Eastern Europe and EU Observer. 

Currently, I write mainly about foreign affairs. I have done reporting in Greece, Sweden and Poland, but also in places like Kaliningrad or Abu Dhabi. The issues I care most about are inequality, social changes, minorities’ rights and life stories.

What makes this work?
