Nadja Vancauwenberghe (Paris, 1970) is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of EXBERLINER magazine. She studied journalism in London; Russian and politics in Paris. Sent to Moscow on a doctoral scholarship, she embarked on a journalism career, working for AFP‘s Moscow Bureau, while freelancing investigative stories for international media, most notably undercover reports from the Chechen war. Blacklisted by the Putin regime in 2002, Nadja came to Berlin and founded EXBERLINER with two fellow journalists in 2003. Responsible for the magazine’s content since its creation, she’s developed an editorial concept driven by a strict commitment to first-hand journalism and her enduring belief in quality print journalism.
