Remmelt de Weerd
Remmelt is former managing director and final editor at The Broker. He has a BSc in Human Geography from Utrecht University and an MSc in Political Geography from the University of Amsterdam, where he focused on the political geography of Central and Eastern Europe. This made him The Broker’s point person on Central and Eastern European issues. Besides his work at The Broker, Remmelt worked as a research journalist for the Dutch journalism platform ‘De Correspondent’, focusing on investigative reporting. His general interest as a geographer lies with conflicting scales of power in a globalizing world. He is also well informed on European politics and initiated an EU-fact checking website in 2013.
The Broker is growing! This month we are pleased to welcome three new colleagues: Anika Altaf, Arthur Rempel and Samenda Bauer. Below is a brief introduction to all three.

They were impossible to miss last month—e-mails about privacy regulations. People who are subscribed to digital newsletters were especially blown away by a huge amount of confirmation requests.
