Paul C. Strobel

Politics and its continuation by other means

In short


Hi there! Let me introduce myself. My name is Paul and I was born in Munich, Germany in 1990. Today I live in Berlin with my wife and daughter. And I live a double life - professionally speaking of course! I work as Head of Social Media for Germany's largest political action group and I am also an aspiring Platoon Commander with the German Army Reserves. After I studied Politics and Communications at the LSE in London, I became fascinated with the intersection of the military and communications realm. And I am fascinated by their dark side. So I started following developments in propaganda, disinformation and information warfare. This brought together the worlds of political communications and international security policy and thus underpin and inform both of my career paths. It also allows me to offer my expertise as a commentator and author for news outlets, blogs and industry publications.

In my free time my daughter and family have priority, but I try and take at least one hour every day to drive one of my personal projects forward. Be that by working on my 1974 VW van, going for a run, or working on my army career. I try to never stand still and challenge myself on a daily basis.

You can read more about my work and hobbies below. Please also consider following me on social media for more regular updates (Twitter is my go to) and don't hesitate to get in touch with me. I would love to meet you!
