Marianna Karakoulaki

I am an award winning journalist, editor and researcher with more than five years of experience in journalism publishing, and social media marketing. I work as a foreign correspondent, producer and fixer for a variety of media organisations and international human rights organisations from the UK, the USA, Germany, Finland, Switzerland and others; and I have reported from Greece and the wider Balkan region. I have built a reputation of valid and trustworthy reporting that is trusted by thousands. Through my social media presence I have managed to create a wide network of contacts and resources.
I focus on humanitarian reporting and politics and my expertise is in migration and refugee issues, European politics, gender and feminism (especially reproductive rights in the USA), and social movements and protests. 

In 2017 my story ‘EU-Turkey Deal Fails to Stop Refugee Flow‘ published on Deutsche Welle won a prize at the European Migration Media Award. I am also a member of the National Union of Journalists (UK). In 2015 I was part of the production of 'Macedonia: Tracking Down the Refugee Kidnap Gangs' which won the Foreign Press Association Award for News Story of the Year and Royal Television Society for the Independent Award.

My book 'Crossing Lines - Climbing Walls: Critical Perspectives on Migration in the 21st Century' will be published in the Spring of 2018.

I have a BA in Mediterranean Studies (International Relations and Organisations), University of the Aegean, Greece and a MA in International Relations (Security Studies), University of Birmingham, UK.
