Madeleine Hofmann
Transatlantic Media Fellow
Madeleine Hofmann Headshot

Madeleine Hofmann bundled her expertise in political sciences, sociology and journalism to write the non-fictional book ‚Macht Platz!‘ on the topic of intergenerational justice. Since then she has been an advocate for the rights of future generations, reporting on the topic for media outlets such as Spiegel Online, Zeit Online and ZDF Zoom. She will use the fellowship to research the questions of how to make politics more participative and how to establish more diversity and solidarity in our political institutions.

Madeleine will travel to Georgia, Newark and Wisconsin to understand how politics can become more inclusive, participative and progressive and what enormous challenges especially young women face when they run for office today.
