Edi­to­rial stu­dent assi­stant for the blog "about:intel"

Work­ing field:

The Stif­tung Neue Ver­ant­wor­tung is an inde­pen­dent think tank that deve­lops con­crete ideas for how poli­tics can shape tech­no­lo­gi­cal change in society, the eco­nomy, and the state. Recently, we laun­ched about:intel ( - a new pan-European blog on intel­li­gence, tech­no­logy, and demo­cracy. In coope­ra­tion with part­ners in the UK and France, we curate and publish arti­cles from European intel­li­gence experts in all rele­vant sec­tors: intel­li­gence agen­cies, over­sight insti­tu­ti­ons, government, legis­la­tive bodies, indus­try, aca­de­mia, and civil society.
