I’m Joe Litobarski, a freelance European political journalist. I live in Maastricht, in the southern Netherlands, with my wife and two daughters.

I’m the co-founder and editor of Debating Europe, an online discussion platform focusing on European politics.

As a journalist, I’ve interviewed hundreds of politicians from across Europe, including prime ministers, presidents, government ministers, European commissioners, MEPs, and national MPs.

I’m also an experienced moderator of panel discussions and online debates.
