Paloma Haschke-Joseph works for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) as a Project Management Specialist on Intercultural Engagement and is now in charge of the Fellowship Program and its Alumni network. She is also finishing her PhD at the Political Science Institute of Paris under the supervision of Pr. Gilles Kepel. Through an interdisciplinary perspective, which crosses academic and journalistic approaches, her thesis focuses on the transformation of the Egyptian news media landscape since the early 2000s, focusing on private satellite channels and social media, and the impact this evolving media landscape has had on the country’s political scene. Middle East, and Egypt more particularly, is the region in which she has been specializing for more than ten years. The choice of her research topic is directly linked to her academic path and professional experience. Since 2004 she has been spending most of her time between New York, Paris, and Cairo where she has been conducting field work and interviews, and worked in different fields such as local policy and media for different institutions and organizations. In 2008, she graduated from a Master’s Degree in Comparative Politics in the Muslim World program at the Political Science Institute of Paris. Two years later, in 2010, she graduated from a Master’s Degree in Journalism, with a major in global broadcasting and new media technologies.
