Despina Papageorgiou

I am a freelancer journalist based in Athens and Crete, Greece.
From in-depth reporting to high profile interviews and op-eds, my work has been published in the Greek and international press. I have also worked as radio show editor, while I have particularly enjoyed being a producer/fixer for international media, including ZDF and Al Jazeera.
Currently, I focus on english-language reporting from Greece and I produce a weekly newsletter on developments from the country in English, for the independent publisher Athens Live.    
My educational background in Philosophy, International Relations & Development as well as seminars on Drama have qualified me with a multidimensional perspective on things.  
Journalism is not about being objective; it's about monitoring power.
