Fanny Facsar

Covering world affairs, conflicts, human rights, and populism.

Connecting the dots between foreign policy and its impact on the ground, Fanny covers political upheaval, conflict, war, populism and autocratic tendencies as a challenge to established and young democracies.

In her role as DW's senior international correspondent Fanny has reported from some of the most dangerous conflicts of recent years: the wars in Ukraine, Yemen, Israel's war in Gaza, Hezbollah's grip on Lebanon, terrorism in Nigeria, Mali, and Burkina Faso.

Born in Budapest, Facsar grew up in Germany and holds a master's degree in journalism and political science from the University of Dortmund and IUT Tours. She previously served as DW's West Africa bureau chief in Nigeria and head of DW's Southeast Europe bureau in Vienna. Facsar is fluent in English, German, French and Hungarian.
