Mirjam Stegherr

I am a journalist and consultant with a background in philosophy and mainly interested in the relations between politics, media and digitization. Since 2016, I am working as a freelancer. Previously, I have been working as the editor-in-chief for a magazine, head of content at an agency and until recently as spokesperson for the German Federation of Consumer Organizations. Data protection and privacy concerns played a major role in my work on consumer protection. I’ve also focused on these issues during my fellowship of the German Marshall Fund. As a philosophy graduate I am especially interested in the values of the digital age and I hope we can support people to gain sound judgement and awareness for their privacy.
