Speaking & Media

Merel Koning is a high-level speaker and panel member for public events, round table discussions with (semi) governmental and non-governmental bodies. These also include the Dutch Ministry of Justice & Security, Europol, Amnesty International and the Netherlands Human Rights Committee. Merel translates complex technological and legal problems into compelling, audience-engaging stories. 

Merel is frequently approached by newspapers and broadcasting organisations for information and her expert opinion on developments on technology, privacy and the politics around these themes. Her ability to present complex matters in accessible language makes her a popular guest for media outlets with a broad audience.  
Merel was recently interviewed by Radio 1 on Privacy for freelance workers, and Net Neutrality and by BNR Radio on the GDPR implementation. She appeared in the NRC Next and NRC Handelsblad on the Dutch intelligence law and on the topic of Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, and in the Metro newspaper with an article on data protection and social media and in the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper on drones and policing.
