As Project Manager for the World Forum for Democracy, he designed programs for two conferences with over 100 speakers.

Jörn is a Carlo Schmid Fellow and a member of the Center for International Peace Operations’ Expert Pool. With a Scholarship from the Franco German University, and as first in his family, he studied International and European Governance with a specialization in Strategy, Intelligence and Risk Management at Sciences Po Lille and the University of Münster. His most important presentation to give was on the topic “Thinking about crisis – Crisis of thought”. Since then, he has explored how institutions meant to save us from, are themselves in, crisis. He joined Demsoc for its thought leadership on opening up institutions and to help creating links between people with great ideas – from the local to the global level.
