Joakim Medin

Investigative journalist
Stockholm, Sweden

Joakim Medin er en svensk journalist som har reist flere ganger til Syria for å dekke den pågående krigen, konsekvensene og det geopolitiske spillet. Han tilbrakte sju uker i Syria sommeren 2015, for blant annet å dokumentere kurdernes kamp og Den islamske staten (IS/Daesh). Hans siste bok, om krigen i Syria og IS/Daesh, kommer ut i april 2016.

Joakim Medin is a Swedish journalist with a special interest in socio-political conflict and development. He has made several trips to Syria to cover the ongoing war, its consequences and the geo-political game, and to try to uncover the truth – always the first victim of war.

He spent seven weeks in Syria in the summer of 2015, to among other things document Western-Kurdish cooperation and the Islamic State group.

Joakim frequently contributes to Scandinavian daily press and magazines, as well as in other countries, and has published about the Syrian war in a book. He has a Master's degree in Journalism from Uppsala University.
