Dieser Beitrag wurde ursprünglich auf some.io veröffentlicht. Soziale Netzwerke sind nicht nur ein fester Bestandteil der Marketingstrategien von Unternehmen geworden, sondern dienen immer mehr auch für die Kundenbetreuung und einen aktiven Austausch mit Kunden im Netz.

Für Konferenzen auf sozialen Medien werben – und ein neues Publikum gewinnen

Dieser Beitrag wurde ursprünglich auf some.io veröffentlicht. Unternehmen und Organisationen werben in sozialen Medien immer mehr für ihre Veranstaltungen. Aber nicht nur um Teilnehmer wird geworben, besonders öffentliche Konferenzen finden online auch ein neues Publikum, das von zu Hause mitdiskutieren will.   Ohne wenig Aufwand kann man über soziale Medien Personen erreichen, zu denen man […]

Bosnia and Herzegovina is one example of a country where journalists have started reconciliation initiatives of which some are still ongoing. Photo taken 2013 from a bus crossing the Western part of the country.

Reconciliative journalism?

A couple of weeks ago I reached one personal milestone in academia. My master’s thesis for the University of Tampere got accepted and published. My topic: post-conflict societies and the role of journalists in peace-building and reconciliation. I knew for a long time that I would like to write about this topic. Also I knew […]

Berlin houses undocumented refugees in the so called "second stage" in containers such as these ones. All habitants of this container village have come into Germany on their own. Similar housing projects are on their way, and more container villages are being built on the outskirts of the capital. Here volunteer workers who are locals from the village have come together with the inhabitants of the containers to plant trees and vegetables in the village's garden.

Life in a Container

  Since two weeks, I have visited a very unusual village in Berlin. It’s made completely out of containers. Its habitants have come to Germany as undocumented migrants. Many of them have risked their lives to make the journey here from Libya, Syria, Kosovo, Albania and other countries to German soil. Last year, 202 000 […]

Citizenfour, Surveillance, and the Mainstream

It was on the subway ride back from the movie theatre where a thought crossed my mind: It is past time that each and every citizen in a somewhat developed country starts to take an interest in questions related to mass surveillance and civic liberties. I don’t think this is the case yet, not even […]

The only thing reminding of the November 26, 2008 attacks in the Taj Majal Palace hotel is this fountain, which is placed behind a window at one corner of the hotel's lobby. The names of those 33 people killed in the hotel are listed on the left-hand side. All together 166 people were killed in the attack that lasted for four days.

26/11, India and Terrorism

Yesterday I talked to a senior professor here at the University of Mumbai. Professor Uttara Sahasrabuddhe teaches political science and International relations. The focus of our talks were Indo-Pakistani relations and the significance of the 2008 terrorist attack on Mumbai, also referred to as “26/11”, which left 166 people killed and over 300 injured after […]

About 70-80 % of the Dharavi slum is recognized by municipal authorities as legal slum and gets supplied with municipal water 3-4 hours a day. The waste of the slum often ends up on mismanaged dumps or the river flowing right next to the one square mile slum area.

The Heart of Mumbai: Dharavi

Dharavi. One million people, one square mile. One of Asia’s, and probably the world’s, biggest slums, not in terms of its area but of the population. Dharavi is located on top of some of the most expensive real estate of the city and of whole India. Here, to rent a house costs around 6000-8000 rupies […]

Opening Up

The website is still quite messy and under construction, but I’m getting there! To open my own website and try building it up to show what I have done so far, is as time consuming as it is rewarding. Have a look at the BIOGRAPHY page to read my résumé, with working history and adquired […]
