As a senior reporter at Buzzfeed News and a member of a team at "Ippen Investigativ", Juliane Löffler helped uncover the abuse of power and affairs of ex-"Bild" editor-in-chief Julian Reichelt last year. The results of the research were published in the New York Times and SPIEGEL, where Juliane has recently started working as an editor. The subsequent dismissal of Julian Reichelt and the reports on the corporate culture at Springer Group caused a resurgence of #MeToo discourse in Germany. 

We look forward to continuing these discourses with Juliane at re:publica 22.
