Judith Raupp studied economics in Freiburg (Germany) and St. Catherines (Canada). After graduating, she worked for more than 20 years for German and Swiss media as a local, economic, and political editor and correspondent. In 2011, she resigned from Süddeutsche Zeitung to train journalists in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Among other things, she built a team for the Collectif des Radios et Télévisions communautaires du Nord Kivu (Coracon) that trains journalists from radios in remote areas. Many radios are located in villages where gunmen kill, loot, and rape. Radios are often the only reliable source of information for the population. The Coracon team received the 2022 Freedom of Expression Award from the Palm Foundation in Schorndorf. Judith Raupp works as a freelance author for Süddeutsche Zeitung and Die Zeit, among others. She is also a fact checker for Leadstories and is member of the board of Journalisten helfen Journalisten, Munich.
