Southeast Asia - Reporting, Research, Analysis
Christina Schott has been reporting since 2002 from Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries. Ever since she became an eyewitness to the democratic upheaval in Indonesia in 1998, she intensively observed the social and political changes in Southeast Asia after the financial crisis. She later wrote about the consequences of the Islamic bomb attacks on Bali and the reconstruction of Aceh after the great tsunami in the Indian Ocean. She followed the development of ASEAN, the religious and ethnic conflicts and the increasing struggle for land use and energy sources in the region. Today, she focuses on environment, energy and climate change as well as society, culture and travel.
Christina Schott completed the Henri Nannen School of Journalism and worked as an editor for Wochenmagazine Stern und Hörzu, before she went to Indonesia with a scholarship of International Journalist Programs (IJP). She studied German, journalism and psychology in Bamberg, Montpellier and Hamburg. Her reports were published in print and online magazines, including Stern, Zeit, taz, FAZ, Deutsche Welle, qantara.de and the English language newspaper The Jakarta Post.
