About Johan
Johan Verheyden is a journalist based in Tunis, Tunisia working until recently for an EU institution, but looking to get back into the saddle as a true journalist. My longstanding experience in the Sahel, as well as contacts at different levels, make me well-placed to both serve as an expert on the region, the politics of the international organisations and the local politics.

Areas of expertise include current affairs, the Sahel (Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Mauretania, Chad, Ivory Coast) EU affairs, international politics, ...

Extensive coverage of crisis areas - including war zones (Croatia, 1991-1995, Bosnia and Herzegovina 1992-1995, Serbia and Kosovo 1992-1997, Algeria 1993-1994), post-conflict areas as well as EU institutions.
