As part of its workshop for the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’s (KAS) Multilateral Dialogue office in Austria on 9 December 2020, Atomic Reporters staff interviewed nuclear non-proliferation, media and public information experts online who have previously been involved in issues supporting Atomic Reporters’ work to encourage independent journalism on the nuclear file.
Over the next days, we will publish these interviews on the Atomic Reporters reporter website and social media channels. First up – an interview with Elisabeth Waechter, former head of public information for the Comprehensive Test-Ban-Treaty Organization.
Elisabeth oversaw media and communications for the CTBTO from 2014 to 2018 and led the communications response to three suspected nuclear tests by the DPRK. She has been working for the United Nations since 2005 and has extensive experience delivering a wide range of public information and outreach products in an international multilateral environment
